Texas Education Agency

The Texas Education Agency (TEA), located in Austin, Texas, is a branch of the state government of  Texas and oversees public elementary and secondary education in the state.  Included in the oversight responsibilities is monitoring for compliance with federal guidelines.

The most current information about supports and services provided by the Texas Education Agency, including documents and resources, can be located by accessing the TEA homepage.

IDEIA, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act 2004, is the federal law that assures that students with disabilities receive a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment.

An important component of the IDEIA law promotes parent participation in their child's education.  Toward that goal, the TEA has developed a website link off of its Special Education in Texas page with the most current version of the Parent Resource Guide.
