Non-Educational Community-Based Support Services
Non-Educational Community-Based Support Services (Non-Ed) funds provide assistance to support families of students with disabilities who are at risk of being placed in a residential facility primarily for educational purposes. Non-Ed funds may also be used to support the family when a student with disabilities placed in a residential facility primarily for educational purposes returns from the residential facility. Non-Ed funds are intended to help families care for their children with severe disabilities and enable the families to better cope with having a child with a disability at home.
Services provided with Non-Ed funds must be non-educational in nature and must not be used for services that are paid with educational funds. Additionally, services provided with Non-Ed funds are not intended to be intensive or long-term but rather, periodic and short-term.
Parents wishing to access Non-Ed services may contact their child's school and request a meeting to discuss the need for Non-Ed services.
Non-Ed funds are optional for an LEA (ISD or Open-Enrollment Charter School). If an LEA chooses to apply for Non-Ed funds, the Non-Ed application must be submitted to ESC 5 by the deadline established by ESC 5.
Region 5 ESC will devote its operation to the purpose of helping each school educate its students so as to assure their success in our society.
Per HB 462, resources and services provided by Region 5 ESC are aligned with, and designed to support, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills(TEKS) adopted by the State Board of Education.
Region 5 ESC Vision:
The vision of ESC 5 is to be the provider of choice for education services and solutions.
Region 5 ESC Mission:
The mission of ESC 5 is to assist schools through various initiatives in meeting the needs of students through efficient and economical means.
