Special education is defined under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as specially designed instruction, at no cost to parents, to meet the unique needs of a student with a disability.  Related services are supportive services that are required to assist a student with a disability to benefit from special education.
Fabens ISD provides a continuum of educational programs and support services in the least restrictive environment (to the maximum extent appropriate) for all students identified with a disability. Our mission is to improve student performance academically, emotionally and socially in order for our students to achieve their individual goals that will allow them to be successful and contributing members of their community while they are in school and after graduation.
Please contact me at the phone number listed below for policy information prohibiting harassment and bullying, for non-discrimination on the basis of disability, for procedures for reporting and resolving complaints (whether under special education or Section 504), or for any other questions, comments or concerns you may have.
