SPED Spotlight

     Flower Mound Public School Special Education Department specializes in providing an array of
services tailored to each exceptional student and provides support to meet their individualized
educational needs within state and federal guidelines. The purpose of special education is to minimize
the impact of the disability and maximize the opportunity for the student to successfully participate in
school. Flower Mound’s Special Services department provides guidance and support to teachers and
families to ensure students are provided the specialized instruction and related services they require to
succeed academically as outlined in the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) with
maintaining their rights under the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
     Parents who believe their child is in need of special education and/or wish to learn more about
their rights under IDEA may contact Flower Mound’s Special Education Director, Ashlee Leighow at
