Legal Guidelines Pertaining to Special Education
An ARD (Admission, Review, and Dismissal) Committee is an educational group that makes important plans and decisions for select students. The ARD Committee often creates Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for students with special education needs. An ARD Committee typically includes members representing regular education, special education, campus leadership, and parents or guardians.
Per IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), IEPs are required for children with disabilities, including preschool-aged children.
Educator’s Code of Ethics
The Educators’ Code of Ethics is set forth in the Texas Administrative Code to provide rules for standard practices and ethical conduct toward students, professional colleagues, school officials, parents, and members of the community.
As with many professions requiring a state license, the teaching profession—like law and medicine—is governed by a code of ethics. This code outlines standards of personal and professional conduct that you, a member of the profession, must uphold. Violating a standard can have serious consequences for your teaching certificate.
