Stakeholder Survey for Cyclical Monitoring
The Division of Review and Support at the Texas Education Agency (TEA) strives to improve
special education services for Texas local education agencies (LEAs). The monitoring process is intended to help school districts continuously improve services and facilitate positive student outcomes. As a stakeholder involved in special education, your feedback is important to inform our process development.
State monitoring activities include investigating, reporting and correcting federal or state
non-compliance of special education policies and procedures. Monitoring activities may include a district
self-assessment, an on-site visit or other activities by the TEA.
Your district is participating in the special education the Differentiated Monitoring and Support process.
Please provide feedback through this 10-20-minute survey. This information is vital to our ability to
provide information to LEAs concerning their monitoring results.
The purpose of this survey is to gather information and revise support for all districts in Texas.
Any comments or concerns specific to your district should be sent directly to your
school district personnel as specific concerns will not be forwarded from TEA to districts.

Your responses will only be reviewed internally to assist TEA with the monitoring process. The information you share is confidential to the extent permitted by law. Responses to the survey may be subject to public information requests in accordance with the Public Information Act. Texas Government Code, Chapter 552.

Digital Billboard Project
The DHS Alumni Association and Ricky Bates (Class of ’76 and Sign Machine owner) have joined forces to replace the DHS old billboard with a state-of-the-art digital billboard through the sale of commemorative bricks that will be incorporated into the base of the board.
Governor Abbott issued an executive order that will go into effect March 10, 2021 which will lift the mask mandate in Texas. At this time, and until further notice, Denison ISD will continue to enforce all existing social distancing guidelines that have been in effect since the beginning of the school year.
All students, employees, and visitors will continue to be required to wear face coverings.
In addition, all social distancing guidelines will remain in effect.
Social distancing guidelines impact a school environment much differently than they impact other organizations or places of business. COVID-19 still exists. Therefore, it remains important to the health and safety of our students and employees to continue to diligently implement social distancing guidelines.
Although the mask order will be lifted in Texas, school districts are required to continue to conduct contact tracing when someone contracts the virus and we are required to continue to establish quarantine periods. Not requiring face coverings in the school setting will likely increase the number of students or employees who will be required to quarantine due to close contact, and could potentially increase the number of students or employees who have contracted the virus.
We are anticipating further direction from the Texas Education Agency and the CDC in the days to come. We will carefully consider any information we receive and will keep you updated if there are any changes to Denison ISD’s health and safety protocols. Again, face coverings continue to be required and we will continue to implement all social distancing guidelines.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this unprecedented time.
