(34 CFR §300.111—Child Find)
The LEA is obligated to conduct a Full Individual Evaluation under 34 CFR §300.301 (a) and to make a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) available to each eligible child under 34 CFR §300.101.
Every child with a disability in Texas, from age three through twenty-one as of September 1 of the current school year, has the right to a free appropriate public education. Students with visual or auditory impairments have the right to a free appropriate public education from birth. The ISD provides free appropriate programs for students with disabilities.
