We are approaching the one-year anniversary of when many schools closed for the COVID-19 pandemic last year. The governor officially closed all schools April 17, 2020, but many closed in the second week of March. Because there is a one-year deadline to file complaints with the Texas Education Agency to get compensatory education services, parents who believe their child needs these services due to school closures last year because of the pandemic should first send a request letter immediately to your child’s school. Please complete the form below which will generate a PDF of a letter you can download, print and mail to your child's school.
If after sending a request letter, the school does not respond or provide the services in a prompt manner, parents can use our letter generator to create a complaint to send to TEA. The letter must be sent before or by the date your school first closed and changed to remote learning.
Languages: this Request Compensatory Services from School resource is available in English and Spanish. Be aware that DRTx recommends that you provide your letter in a language understandable to the party or entity receiving it, which in most circumstances will be English.
Parents can complete the information in this form and it will generate a letter in PDF format that you can download and mail to the school.
