Fredericksburg ISD is ready, willing and able to identify and serve all children with disabilities residing within our jurisdiction or who attends a private or home school within our boundaries and are in need of special education and related services.
The term “special education” means specially-designed instruction, at no cost to parents, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. The term “child with a disability” means the child must meet eligibility criteria for at least one of the 13 disabilities specifically outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and, as a result of the disability, has a need for specially designed instruction that can only be provided through special education. Parents who suspect that their child may have a disability should contact their child’s teacher or a campus administrator to discuss a referral to the campus RtI team.
For more information concerning eligibility criteria and the referral process, contact the counselor of your neighborhood school or the Special Education Department at 830-990-4846.
