Special Education » Home


Western Hills is home to three specific Special Education programs. First, we have the Resource & Content-Mastery Program, with additional in-class support services.  Additionally, we have the PASS (Positive Approach to Student Success) program; which provides explicit social skills and emotional regulation learning and support. As of the 2021-2022 school year, we are excited to welcome the Functional Academics (FA) program for eligible students served in grades K-2. In addition to these specific programs, students who receive Speech services and/or any other eligible services through IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) are served within WHES and/or TISD.
The Temple ISD Special Education department works to ensure that the individual needs of each child are addressed so that all of our students can become healthy, productive members of the community.  Students benefit when there is strong collaboration between home and school, so we encourage families to stay in contact with your child’s teachers.  For additional information, resources and helpful links, including district contact information, please check out our district page using the link in the box to the right.
