Co-Teaching in Spring ISD
Welcome to the Spring ISD Special Services Department

Children are special and so is their education in Spring ISD. Approximately 9% of Spring ISD students have been determined to need specialized instruction according to the Spring ISD 2010-2011 Academic Excellence Indicator Report (AEIS). These special teaching efforts are supported and monitored by the Special Services Department.

Evaluation of the needs of the student by Special Services and regular education staff members and parents through the Admission / Review / Dismissal (ARD) process determines which of the array of individual educational services are made available through the Individual Education Plan (IEP).

Special Services are expected to be provided in the "least restrictive environment". For many years, that meant that students received the special services in separate classrooms. Now, however, federal and state funds for the special services are being based on the "inclusion" model which encourages the placement of students who receive Special Services into regular education classrooms when deemed appropriate by the Admission / Review / Dismissal (ARD) committee. Spring ISD provides a continuum of Special Services for students and that is determined on an individual basis through the Admission / Review / Dismissal (ARD) process. If you have questions regarding Special Education Services, please contact our main phone number at (281) 891-6265.
