Kimbrough offers Specialized Academic Instruction (SAI) to general education students in Kindergarten through Fifth grade who are eligible for Special Education services. We service children who are intellectually disabled, speech- and language-impaired, emotionally-disturbed, learning-disabled, and children with autism. SAI is delivered to these students through push-in and pull-out small group models for individualized instruction, modification and support. Services are based on Individualized Education Plans (IEP’s) developed by a team of parents, general education teachers, service providers, and administrators.
Kimbrough’s special education staff consists of two Resource Specialist, a Speech Language Pathologist, a Bilingual School Psychologist, a Special Education Tech, two bilingual Special Education Assistants, one day a week Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, and Adaptive PE teacher. If you have any questions about special education, please contact Andrea Minyo or Rhonda Schwartz at 525-2010, ext. 4210.
Special Education support and services are provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004. The delivery of special education services in the San Diego Unified School District is described in the district’s Local Plan for Special Education .
