Supplemental Special Education Services

Governor Abbott and the Texas Education Agency  has set up a fund for parents and children with special education needs due to the disruptions of COVID-19.  These services will be provided under an initiative called Supplemental Special Education Services (SSES). Supplemental Special Education Services (SSES) are on-line accounts for eligible parents/caregivers of students with significant and complex disabilities that have been impacted by COVID-19 school closures. Families of students with eligible disabilities can use the on-line accounts to obtain special educational resources and supplies and/or services such as additional speech therapy or other specific services. SSES credits are up to $1,500 per student to be used to supplement what otherwise happens in school to help students continue to make educational progress.
