TEA Update on Mediation Requests | Actualizaciones de la TEA sobre las Solicitudes de Mediación

2021-09-01T21:44:11-05:00

During this time, TEA will not be receiving visitors and, as a result, will not be able to accept hand delivery of requests for special education mediation. In addition, while requests may still be filed by mail, disruptions in the delivery of agency mail may occur due to possible closures in the mail room and distribution center. TEA, instead, recommends that parties consider using other available filing methods.
