Katy ISD projects hike in special education enrollment

April 1808:30 AM
 

Katy ISD is preparing for a major increase of students with disabilities. As of October, the number of students in special education at KISD was 8,647, according to a March 18 district report. By October 2019, the district estimates there will be 10,984 special education students, or a 27% year-over-year increase. Over the past 5 years, the year-over-year increase has ranged between 6% and 11%. The district plans to hire an additional 200 or so teachers and other staff for the 2019-20 school year to address this influx of students. There are several reasons for this faster-than-usual growth of special education students, such as the Texas Education Agency’s new guidance on identifying children with special needs, the Katy area’s population growth and KISD’s reputation as one of the best school districts, KISD officials, parents and advocacy groups said. view article  arw
