Special Education


Cabrillo Elementary is the consummate example of what inclusion should look like. Special Ed students are educated side by side with typical peers in general ed classes. Students may receive services and therapies pushed in or pulled out of their classrooms depending on the needs of the student.

The San Diego Unified School District is committed to providing young children and 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 to provide appropriate support and services to those eligible.

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.
