If you believe your child may have any of these special needs, please contact your local school district or the SELPA Office at (209) 238-6551.

Every child with a disability that causes him or her to need specialized educational services in order to benefit from education is entitled to receive special education and related services at no cost to parents.

If you suspect that your child is experiencing difficulty learning because of a disability, please notify your child’s teacher or call your local school or contact the special education department in your school district. If interventions in the classroom are unsuccessful, you may be invited to participate in a Student Study Team meeting to determine whether or not a referral for special education assessment is appropriate. If so, you will be asked to give your approval for testing and informed of the results. No placement will be made without your approval. Due process are available if any issues arise which cannot be settled at the local level. School districts do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, or disability in programs and activities.
