Special Education is a specialized instruction provided for children from birth to age 22 who qualify according to the laws and regulations outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004). In accordance with State and Federal law, SVUSD offers a range of Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) programs based on student needs.
Scotts Valley serves a wide range of students with special needs:
Students that have mild to moderate disabilities are typically served within Scotts Valley Unified School District. Students with mild to moderate disabilities may have learning disabilities, speech and language delays, minor health disabilities, or have a mild form of autism.
Students with moderate to severe disabilities, including severely handicapped, pre-school through 5th grade are frequently served by Scotts Valley Unified School District. Additionally Pre-school through 22-years may be served by other programs determined to appropriately provide a public education.
If you suspect your child has a disability, do not hesitate to contact the Director of Special Education or your site administrator.
Early detection and intervention is important!
