Welcome to the Department of Special Education
The Office of Special Education aims to provide inclusive supports to facilitate and enable students to receive quality instruction, discover personal and academic strengths and make progress toward individual student goals. Friendswood ISD provides a Continuum of Special Education Supports for students, determined on an individual basis, through the Admission / Review / Dismissal (ARD) process.
We are committed to providing a Free and Appropriate Public Education to ensure all students make educational progress in their least restrictive environment. The Admission / Review / Dismissal (ARD) process is followed to determine which services a student requires in order to access his/her educational environment. This collaborative process includes the student, parents, teachers, administrators, assessment staff, and other relevant related service staff based on student needs.
