IDEA's Special Education Program

The Special Programs team provides resources, training, and support for all campuses that service students who are English Language Learners (ELL) and/or receive 504, Homebound, Dyslexia, or Special Education services. Additionally, we provide resources, training, and support for the Response to Intervention (RtI) process and for campuses that service students who receive a specialized remedial curriculum for additional academic support.

Campus Leaders

Jason Fitz

Jason Fitzgerald

Principal, IDEA Innovation Academy

Jason grew up in the tiny town of Azle, Texas and graduated in high school in 2005. He attended the University of Texas at Arlington and earned a B.A. in History and a M. Ed. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. Jason was a teacher, middle school assistant principal, and high school assistant principal in Arlington ISD where he grew multiple STAAR subjects by double digits.

Jason joined IDEA in 2017 as a Principal in Residence looking to grow as an instructional leader and to lead a campus to serve the most underserved. At Weslaco Pike, Jason helped lead the campus to earn 7 out of 7 state distinctions. In the Fall of 2018, Jason transitioned to IDEA Judson College Prep and helped guide the growing campus in the San Antonio suburbs to best serve its very diverse population.

Jason joined IDEA Innovation Academy in December 2018 as Principal. He is excited to serve the Baton Rouge community and the Southern Louisiana region.

In his spare time, Jason enjoys to travel, eat a whole bunch of BBQ, and spend time with his family.
