Austin State University, and my Masters of School Administration from Lamar Univeristy. I serve the fine students and staff of Ridgemont as the ARD facilitator, 504 Coordinator, and the testing Coordinator. I have served in this capacity for the past 7 years, however this is my first year at Ridgemont. I love being an educator and I am proud to say that I have had the opportunity to touch many lives over the past 26 years. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 27 years and we have one son who is a FBISD graduate of Elkins HS and now attending his parents alma matter SFASU. "Axe 'Em Jacks!" When I'm not serving the students and staff of Ridgemont, I enjoy shopping (I just love my retail therapy), reading, and singing. This is my 27th year in eduction and I look forward to seeing and working with you and/or your child/children. As Campus Compliance Coordinator, I coordinate the campus special education department, 504 Meetings, referrals, and facilitate special education ARDs. I am excited to be a part of this amazing team at RME and ELC!

THE ADMISSION, REVIEW AND DISMISSAL PROCESS
The Texas Education Agency has developed a Guide to the Admission, Review and Dismissal Process. If after reading this handbook you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Special Education office.
Special education law defines state complaint procedures and due processes to safeguard a free appropriate public education for children with disabilities in order to resolve problems and or disagreements. This explanation is readily available on each campus and a signed parental receipt for this document is contained in the state audit folder of every special education student. A complete copy of the Individuals with Disabilities Act 2004 (IDEA) and the State Regulations are available to review at each campus. If you desire a copy of these documents, please ask your campus.
Fort Bend ISD has a duty to make a referral for an initial evaluation for special education services any time it suspects that a child has a disability. This process is sometimes referred to as "Child Find."
If you have any questions or need clarification regarding information related to Child Find, please contact Jennifer Arcangeli, Program Manager for Evaluation and Related Services, 281.634.1351, or email questions to MRWintake@fortbendisd.com.
