Snyder ISD is ready, willing and able to identify and serve all children with disabilities residing within its jurisdiction who are in need of special education and related services.

The term special education means specially designed instruction, at no cost to parent(s)/guardian(s), to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. The term child with a disability means the child must meet eligibility criteria for at least one of the 13 disabilities specifically outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and, as a result of the disability, has a need for specially designed instruction that can only be provided through special education. Parent(s)/guardian(s) who suspect that their child may have a disability should contact the child’s campus administrator, principal, or teacher(s) to discuss a referral to the campus Response to Intervention (RtI) team.

The district’s child find duty also extend to students with disabilities who are placed in private schools and/or are home schooled by their parent(s)/guardian(s). If you are concerned about your child’s learning, or would like additional information related to referral, please contact the Snyder ISD Special Services department.
