  • Important Parent Information regarding Special Education

    April 28, 2020

    Dear Parents,

    Birdville ISD, as required by Senate Bill 139, is providing parents with Updates on Special Education.  You may contact the school, call the District’s special education department at 817-547-5724, or email nikki.beichler@birdvilleschools.net if you have questions or need additional information.

    Thank you,

    Kerri Sands

    Principal

    Richland Elementary

    3250 Scruggs Park Drive

    Richland Hills, TX 76118


    Updates in Special Education

    Beginning with the 2017 school year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) changed the way it reports special education enrollment in school systems. TEA no longer includes a target for a school system’s total numbers of students in special education as part of state monitoring. For special education representation, TEA only reports on overrepresentation within certain race, ethnicity and disability categories, as required by federal law. School systems cannot use this reporting data to delay, deny or prevent a referral for an evaluation for special education services

    Special education/IDEA eligibility:

    The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, also known as IDEA, is a federal law that gives eligible students with disabilities the right to receive special education services and assistance in school. To be eligible for special education services, a student with a disability must need instruction that is specially designed to meet the student’s unique needs based on that disability.

    Who can request an evaluation for special education?

    Parents or Guardians:

    A parent or guardian has the right to request a special education evaluation at any time. It is best to submit this request in writing to your school’s principal or to the school district’s special education director. If your child is pre-school age and not yet enrolled in school, send the letter to the district’s special education director.

    School:

    If the school knows or has reason to suspect that the student has a disability and a need for special education services, the school must refer the student for a special education evaluation. More information on evaluation timelines can be found at: direc.to/dVYR

    A parent or guardian has the right to request a special education evaluation at any time.

    Actualizaciones en Educación Especial

    A partir del año escolar 2017, la Agencia de Educación de Texas (TEA, por sus siglas en inglés) cambió la forma en que informa la inscripción a la educación especial en sistemas escolares. La TEA ya no incluye un objetivo para el número total de estudiantes en educación especial del sistema escolar como parte de la supervisión del estado. Para la representación de educación especial, la TEA solo informa sobre la excesiva representación dentro de ciertas categorías de raza, grupo étnico y discapacidad, según lo exige la ley federal. Los sistemas escolares no pueden utilizar estos datos para retrasar, negar o evitar una remisión para una evaluación para los servicios de educación especial.

    Elegibilidad para educación especial/IDEA

    La Ley de Educación para Personas con Discapacidad, también conocida como IDEA (por sus siglas en inglés) es una ley federal que otorga a los estudiantes elegibles con discapacidad el derecho a recibir servicios de educación especial y asistencia en la escuela. Para ser elegible para los servicios de educación especial, un estudiante con discapacidad debe necesitar instrucciones especialmente diseñadas para satisfacer las necesidades únicas del estudiante basadas en esa discapacidad.

    ¿Quién puede solicitar una evaluación para la educación especial?

    Padres o tutores legales:

    Un padre o tutor legal tiene el derecho a solicitar una evaluación de educación especial en cualquier momento. Es mejor presentar esta solicitud por escrito al director de su escuela o al director de educación especial del distrito escolar. Si su hijo está en edad preescolar y aún no está inscrito en la escuela, envíe la carta al director de educación especial del distrito.

    Escuela:

    Si la escuela sabe o tiene razones para sospechar que el estudiante tiene una discapacidad y una necesidad de servicios de educación especial, la escuela debe derivar al estudiante para una evaluación de educación especial.

    Puede obtener más información sobre los plazos de evaluación en: direc.to/dVYR

    Un padre o tutor legal tiene el derecho a solicitar una evaluación de educación especial en cualquier momento.

  • Congratulations to Richlandś 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year

    Becky Lynch

    Mrs. Lynch


  • sick

    • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. 
    • Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
