Houston ISD provides a continuum of special education services to meet the needs of eligible students with disabilities. We advocate for students with disabilities to receive inclusive instruction with their non-disabled peers and support them in their learning. For more information, contact your child's school or the Office of Special Education Services.
OSES Mission and Vision
The Mission of the Office of Special Education Services is to provide support and guidance to parents, teachers, campus leaders, and other stakeholders that directly improve student outcomes while removing barriers and raising expectations for students with disabilities. The Vision of the Office of Special Education Services is for students with disabilities to receive an exceptional education that will allow them to achieve their highest educational level and reach their greatest potential as caring, responsible, and independent citizens.
The Office of Special Education Services Framework is a fluid framework that guides the services we provide to parents, teachers, campus leaders, and other stakeholders. We believe this framework illustrates the true collaboration needed to make every student a successful learner.
The Office of Special Education Services supports students with disabilities in gaining college and career readiness, and independent living skills through active engagement in the grade-level curriculum.
HISD has systems in place to locate, evaluate, and identify students with disabilities transitioning from Early Childhood Agencies (ECI) and those ages 3 to 21. If you suspect that your child has a disability, please contact your child's school or Evaluation Services.
