What We Do

Things to Consider First:

During a staffing that includes a campus representative familiar with the student (e.g. case manager, classroom teacher etc.,), assessment staff, and related services providers (AI, VI, Behavior Specialists, etc.) in the areas of current eligibility areas, the following will be reviewed: The team is to use the Special Education Staffing Notes 

  • Does the student’s current needs and data align with the current areas of eligibility?
  • Does the data support the possibility of planning and developing meaningful IEP development and present levels of performance?
  • Does the data support agency support/ post-secondary planning for the student that can be provided in a summary of performance for graduating seniors?
  • Does the district have a Full and Individual Evaluation (FIE) dated within three years?
  • Is the information from the FIE stating the student is meeting the federal guidelines and state eligibility criteria according to the Texas Education Agency (T.E.A)?

Components of the REED:

1)      Documentation of staffing (Staffing Notes) with next steps and recommendations for the ARD Committee

2)      Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP)

3)  Summary and Conclusions

4)      Recommendations and Assurances   

5)      Signature Page

6)  The eFIE is completed in ESPED and archived in the Evaluation Folder at the conclusion of the ARD with any updated information from the parent and ARD Committee Members

7)      New FIE date becomes the same date as the IEP meeting in which the REED was completed.

8) The deliberations are to indicate that the ARD committee has accepted the REED as the new FIE.  The date of the FIE is reflecting in the ARD consolidation of important dates screen. 

9) Email both the PEIMS Clerk & IEP Clerk to report that an archive of the FIE document has occurred.  Include the student’s name, ID number, type of document archived and date of the archive in the email correspondence.
