What we offer

Our district works to create an environment where children of all learning types succeed. Each campus has a student support team for those struggling behaviorally or academically as well as a team of dedicated professionals for special education.

We provide campus-based Special Education so that our ARD committees can create flexible services and programs designed for the specific children on campus. We encourage our parents to be a part of the process by participating in ARD meetings, asking questions and working closely with their child’s teacher and school.

Please contact your child‘s school if you have a concern.

    Special Needs safety decals

    The Rowlett Police Department is working with our district to help keep students safe. They have provided special stickers for families to use on their homes and vehicles to help police officers during encounters with community members who are non-verbal, have a mental, emotional or intellectual disability, or have a different special need.

    Use of the stickers is voluntary. To request a sticker or get more information, contact Special Education ask your school counselor.


    Our district offers a variety of workshops for our parents to attend. Go to our Parent Workshops page to learn more, or see what's coming up this month below.
