Special Education

Bells ISD is a member of the Grayson County Special Education Shared Services Arrangement.  The cooperative and its member districts offer comprehensive special education services to eligible students ages 3 through 21 years and to children from birth through age 21 years who have hearing or visual impairment.
Children from birth to 3 years old with other disabilities are referred to appropriate agencies for services. All referrals are considered confidential, and services are provided at no cost. The parent, legal guardian, or surrogate parent retains the right to refuse services and are provided other procedural safeguards under federal and state law.
 
Evaluations in the schools are provided for several areas of suspected disabilities, including learning disabilities, speech and language development, physical impairments, vision or hearing problems, intellectual disability, emotional disturbances, autism/pervasive developmental disorders, health impairments, or traumatic brain injuries.
 
A free, appropriate, public education with a full continuum of services is available.
