About Special Education in Arlington ISD
The Arlington Independent School District provides special education services to more than 5,000 students annually. All students who receive special education services and supports meet eligibility criteria under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
The AISD Special Education Department offers comprehensive special education services and supports designed to meet the needs of each student who has an individualized education program (IEP). Services and supports are determined by the admission, review and dismissal (ARD) committee and are based upon the IEP. This committee includes parents, teachers, campus administrators, evaluation professionals, the student, and other staff (when appropriate). We value and encourage parent involvement in recognition that parents are the best advocates for their children, our students.
Please browse our website for additional information and descriptions of our services and supports, staff contact information, and helpful resources for parents, teachers, students, community members and other stakeholders. If you have comments or suggestions or would like to obtain additional information about the AISD Special Education Department, please contact us at the numbers or mailing address below. Thank you for your interest in the AISD Special Education Department.
