Welcome to the Rapoport Ravens Special Populations Department web page! This page is committed to our students who are served through special education, Section 504, English as a Second Language, and RTI (Response to Intervention) or for those who may be eligible for services in one of these areas. Through these various programs, we strive to provide services that allow all students with disabilities or language acquisition needs to access the same curriculum as their peers.
Pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the District has a duty to identify, refer, evaluate and if eligible, provide a free, appropriate public education to disabled students. For additional information about the rights of parents of eligible children, or for answers to any questions you might have about identification, evaluation, and placement into Section 504 programs, please contact the District’s Section 504 Coordinator, Christina Fuller, at (254) 754-8000.

The Special Education Information Center (SPEDTex) provides resources and interactive features for increasing family awareness of disabilities and special education processes, with the goal of improving partnerships between schools and families.
The purpose of the project is to provide and maintain an updated web-based platform to assist stakeholders such as local educational agencies (LEAs), advocates, and parents in learning about state and federal laws and regulations by providing rich resources regarding obligations and rights for the provision of a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment to students with disabilities.
