Parent and Family Resources (LINKS)
Parent and family involvement is critical in the success of a student with special needs. There are many Harlandale ISD and San Antonio resources that parents can access for safe support, guidance, and parent training.
As part of the Child Find process required by federal regulations, Harlandale ISD will ensure that all students ages three through twenty-one with disabilities who are residing in the district, regardless of the severity of their disabilities, who are in need of special education and/or related services will be identified, located, and evaluated. In addition to students enrolled in the public schools, the Child Find duty extends to students who are homeless, wards of the State,or who are home schooled or who are attending private schools.
