Department of Special Services
IDEA * 504 * Dyslexia
The Marble Falls Independent School District continues to strive to meet the needs of all children and provides support through special services to students who demonstrate an educational need. The mission of the Special Services department is to provide qualified teachers in every classroom and appropriate instruction to ensure that all students learn at high levels. The Special Services department provides support to a wide variety of programs: special education, 504, the district disciplinary facility, and Falls Career High School. Allocation and use of resources are implemented to assure that an appropriate public education is available to all students within the least restrictive instructional arrangement.

The special education department observes federal and state laws, state regulations and local policies pertaining to the confidentiality of student records. Parents (or an eligible student 18 years or older) may inspect and review records at any time. School officials with a legitimate educational interest have access to student records. The parents of a student with a disability must give written consent before a student's records can be seen by someone not involved in the student's education. If the student transfers to another school district, special education records will be sent to the receiving district without parental consent. Special education eligibility and educational records are maintained for five (5) years following the date of the last recorded action for each student served by the Special Education Department of Marble Falls ISD. At the end of five years, the records may be destroyed. During the ARD process, Parent/guardian/adult student has been informed that the District shall retain education records of students with disabilities for five years after the student's graduation or dismissal from special education. Records with personally identifiable information are located on the campus of the school which the student attends and the Special Education Services office at 1800 Colt Circle, Marble Falls, TX 78654. You may call 830-693-4357 and ask for Special Services with any questions concerning records.
