Guided by the USDA, the Texas Department of Agriculture requires the parent or guardian to present validation of their children with any one (1) of the following options:
- Official letter/email/electronic school application from the school listing the indiviudal child's current enrollment
- Report card for each individual child

National Educational Diagnosticians Week
Educational diagnosticians are certified professionals who help identify many types of learning disorders. In recognition of the critical role these individuals play in providing students with a high-quality education, the Texas Educational Diagnosticians Association celebrates March 2-6, 2020 as Educational Diagnosticians Week. It is a time set aside to honor diagnosticians who consistently demonstrate professionalism, competence, and excellence in order to provide individuals with disabilities quality educational services.
Quoting from a recent proclamation issued by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, “For some children, learning new things and succeeding in their classes is a smooth process. For others, additional or specialized instruction is necessary for their success. When young Texans need a greater helping hand, educational diagnosticians play a vital role.”
The following educational diagnosticians serve students across LTISD:
Christy Brothers, Bee Cave Elementary School and West Cypress Hills Elementary School
Jeff Dietzel, Lake Travis High School
Leena Gulati, Serene Hills Elementary School
Traci Jackson, Bee Cave Middle School and Lake Travis Middle School
Lari Rogge, Lake Pointe Elementary School
Thelene Scarborough, Lakeway Elementary School
