Authorities: 34 C.F.R. Part 300; Texas Education Code, 19 T.A.C. Chapter 89
 
 
 
  FEDERAL AND STATE REQUIREMENTS
Each local educational agency must establish an admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committee for each eligible child with a disability and for each child for whom an EVALUATION is conducted.
The term individualized education program (IEP) means a written statement for each child with a disability that is developed, reviewed, and revised in accordance with the ADMISSION, REVIEW, AND DISMISSAL COMMITTEE frameworks.
The ARD committee is the:
  • Group that determines whether the child is a child with a disability and the educational needs of the child;
  • Team defined in federal law that develops the IEP; and
  • Group that determines the educational placement of the child.
Additional information need not be included in the child's IEP beyond what is explicitly required in the ADMISSION, REVIEW, AND DISMISSAL COMMITTEE frameworks and in the Texas Education Agency's (TEA's) model IEP form.
The ARD committee need not include information under one component of the child's IEP that is already contained under another component.
The ARD committee may use the TEA's model IEP form to comply with the ADMISSION, REVIEW, AND DISMISSAL COMMITTEE frameworks.
