Special Education Division

The San Diego Unified School District is committed to providing eligible students with disabilities a free and appropriate public education consistent with federal and state laws. These laws require the district to identify, locate and assess all students within the district from birth to 21 years of age who may have disabilities, and then provide appropriate support and/or related services to those eligible as determined by an educational evaluation. These services are provided based on the individual needs of the student. After a team , comprised of educational professionals and the parent(s) determine a students’ unique needs and consider a variety of factors a document called an IEP is created. An IEP is a legal document that describes how SDUSD provides services to a student with exceptional needs. Special Ed support and services are provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004).
