This is a very interesting and informative article on how thousands of students are being denied Special Education services in Texas. You can see how the percentage of Special Education students has changed in your district since 2004. Simply choose or search for your district from the drop down menu under the section titled Search Your School District. Once the bar graph appears hoover your mouse over each bar (each bar represents a year from 2004-2015) in the bar graph to see the percentage of Special Education students in the district for that particular year. Nearly all school districts have decreased the percentage of Special Education students receiving services therefore dramatically increases the number of students who are denied and not receiving services needed for them to have access to a free and appropriate education under IDEA.
