Welcome to Special Programs at Arp ISD, where we are constantly striving to provide quality educational experiences for our students.The special programs department provides needed services to children that require additional resources in the regular education classroom, such as English as a second language (ESL), gifted & talented (GT), dyslexia, and Section 504 services. If you feel that your child would benefit from any of these services, please contact your child's campus administrator. 
English as a Second Language

The goal of the Arp ISD English as a Second Language (ESL) program is to enable the student identified as Limited English Proficient (LEP), including immigrant children and youth, to attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same challenging State academic content and student achievement standards as all children are expected to meet. For a brief description of our ESL program, please click on the ESL Program Guide document below. 
Section 504

Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Section 504 ensures that the child with a disability has equal access to an education. The child may receive accommodations in the regular ed. classroom to help them be more successful. If your child has a disability that substantially limits their ability to perform as equally to that of their non-disabled peers, please contact the special programs department. For more information about Section 504, see the Program Guide and links below. 
Gifted & Talented

The Arp ISD Gifted and Talented Program is designed for students who are identified as gifted and talented according to Arp ISD’s identification procedure. Emphasis will be placed on providing a learning environment and activities that foster the development of higher order thinking skills, creative thinking skills, problem solving skills, and communication skills.  Students will be exposed to experiences and information that are outside the bounds of the regular curriculum. For more information about GT Education, see the Program Guide below.
