Special Education



The Texas City Independent School District Special Education services are provided to enhance appropriate educational opportunities for students with disabilities. With high expectations for success, students with disabilities are prepared to become life-long learners and contributing members of the community.

TCISD provides special educational services to students with disabilities as provided in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act, 2004. The District has the duty to identify, refer, evaluate and if the child is eligible, provide a free, appropriate public education to students with disabilities.

For additional information about the rights of parents of eligible children or for answers regarding special education or Section 504, please contact the Director of Special Education at 409-916-0106, or by mail at 1700 Ninth Avenue North, Texas City, Texas 77590.

The Special Education department supports parent involvement at all levels. The special education facilitator at each campus can provide information regarding the ARD process, transfers, available resources, and the continuum of services found in TCISD. Parents are encouraged to call for information if questions or concerns arise.

The current Updates in Special Education SB 139 Notice to Families link is available in Spanish and English.

Coach to Communicate (C2C)

Free Parent Training Opportunity

The Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University would like to offer training at no cost to Texas parents and caregivers of children up to age 22 with core features of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Parents and caregivers will learn how to improve their child's communication skills. 

The training includes a 1-hour self-paced webinar that teaches behavioral strategies to increase communication use in children with ASD. Once complete, parents can choose to be paired with a coach for a more intensive 12-week training specific to their child’s communication needs (again, at no cost to parents). Shorter options of 2-5 coaching sessions are also available for parents, if better suited to their needs.  Coaching is offered in English, Spanish and Thai.
