Special Education

  • Students requiring additional support services are served in a variety of settings in Hardin ISD.  Special Education Services for Hardin ISD are provided by the Southeast Texas Cooperative.  For more information about your student's specific needs, please contact your campus counselor or principal.

  • In 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 139 (SB 139), which requires Texas Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to distribute the following notice to parents:

    SB 139 Notice to Families (English version)

    SB 139 Notice to Families (Spanish version)

    The contact person on each campus is the counselor.

    If your child lives within the bounds of our district, and you are concerned about his/her development, behavior, emotional, or physical health and would like to request a Special Education Evaluation, please go to coo.libertyisd.net and click on Parent Request for Special Education Evaluation or Solicitud de Los padres para una Evaluación de Educación Especial.

    Hardin ISD provided this information to all parents via sending home with students on February 26, 2020.

     

    More information about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Dyslexia, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 can be found at TEA's website https://tea.texas.gov/academics/special-student-populations/special-education/resources

     

    TEA has also developed a document intended to assist parents whose children may have been previously delayed or denied an evaluation under the IDEA in requesting compensatory services for their child.  That information can be found here: Compensatory Services, English; or Compensatory Services, Spanish.
