In 2017, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) piloted the implementation of Special Education Liaisons or Special Education Field Agents as we are called in some regions, to be a part of a state-wide PLC-Professional Learning Community. Each of the Regional Education Service Centers (ESCs) across the state come together monthly to share, plan, and collaborate to provide differentiated and targeted support and assistance to local districts.
The Field Service Specialist provides on-site support specifically designed and customized to meet the needs of Local Education Agencies (LEAs). Field Supports about Special Education are available for district leadership, campus administration, classroom instructors, and special education professional staff.
Below is a SPED Talk podcast produced by Pam and Jon, Liaisons at ESC 11and ESC 12.
