About School, Family, and Community Engagement...
Partners Resource Network and Region 10 Education Service Center are working with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on the School, Family, and Community Engagement Network. The goal of this Network is to help school staff and parents build collaborative relationships and increase positive outcomes for students with disabilities.

The Network has been asked by the TEA to gather information regarding special education trends and needs from the perspective of parents and other stakeholders. This information will be used to inform the development of resources for parents/guardians and educators of children with disabilities.
