Special Education Services
The purpose of this site is to provide our stakeholders with knowledge of the secondary transition process to facilitate student progress toward attainment of their postsecondary goals. On this site you will find resources for students, parents, educators and agency resources.
At Silsbee ISD, we believe that all children are entitled to educational opportunities designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for maximum independence as an adult. Numerous programs are available for children with disabilities from age three through 21.
Silsbee ISD calls our program Special Services rather than “Special Education” because our purpose is to offer an array of special services, which support students and teachers in the learning process.
Evaluation of the needs of the student by Special Services and general education staff members and parents through the Admission/Review/Dismissal (ARD) process determines which of the smorgasbord of individual educational services are made available through the Individual Education Program (IEP). The last summative evaluation of the Special Services program indicated the teachers, administrators, parents and students who responded to a survey were satisfied with the special services that have been designed for the individual students.
The Special Education Information Center (SPEDTex) provides resources and interactive features for increasing family awareness of disabilities and special education processes, with the goal of improving partnerships between schools and families.
