Special Services

Our Special Services Department aims to provide you answers and resources to help your special needs child have a positive educational experience. If you ever have any questions about the services your child receives, or if you feel your child should be receiving services, please give us a call. We are always happy to help you.

Special Education

We work with families to create Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) to meet the specific needs of their children. This plan includes related services in and out of school, at no cost to the family, to complement the student’s personal instruction and ensure that he/she receives the most benefit from his/her education.

The Individualized Education Program (IEP)

The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a written program that outlines the special education services the student will receive. A continuum of services is available based on the needs of the student. At SLUSD, we believe in the importance of parent participation and collaboration. Pursuant to A.R.S. 41-1351, we will destroy special education records including intervention, evaluation, and IEPs four years after the student’s final enrollment in the district.

Child Find

Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA ’04) that requires a school district to locate, identify, and evaluate all children with disabilities from birth through age 21 who are located within their geographical boundaries and in need of early intervention or special education services.
