Supplemental Special Education Services Description
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is providing online accounts of $1,500 to parents of eligible students with significant and complex disabilities who have been impacted by COVID-19 school closures. Approximately 18,000 accounts across the state of Texas are available. The online accounts are set up in a digital marketplace in which families can shop for goods or services using the $1,500 in their digital wallets to supplement and bolster services a child is already receiving in school. Students who qualify are K-12 students with significant and complex disabilities who need help accessing the general curriculum and who are STAAR Alt II eligible in 3rd to 12th grade. A priority will be given to families who meet low-income criteria. Also, families with multiple eligible students qualify for this credit for each student. TEA has already started accepting parent applications for this service.
