Special Education

Castleberry ISD Special Education Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality education and services in the least restrictive environment to students with disabilities and their families. 

CISD provides a comprehensive educational program with complete educational opportunities essential to the full intellectual and social development of students with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21.

Services are provided in the least restrictive environment that allows access to the general education curriculum and instruction with non-disabled peers to the extent that is appropriate for the student. 

The Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) committee determines services for individual students with disabilities.  Only this committee can establish the child’s category of disability, develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and decide on an appropriate educational placement.

The Special Education Department provides a continuum of services and related services to meet the needs of eligible students. 

CISD Special Programs follows all federal, state, and local regulations.
