Special Education

Vacaville Unified School District is dedicated to providing appropriate, high quality, evidence based supports and services to students in the least restrictive learning environment. We work in partnership with the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) to provide appropriate support and related services to those students. 

Vacaville Unified is committed to providing eligible students with disabilities a free and appropriate public education consistent with federal and state laws.

Assessment will be done only with parent permission at which time parents will also receive a copy of their rights. Upon identification of a special need for a child, the IEP Team shall consider appropriate services and placement.

Arrangements will be made to have a child's strengths and possible needs evaluated. This will be done through testing and conferences held among those who have worked with the child: teachers, nurses, counselors, therapists, psychologists and others.  The assessment will be completed and an IEP meeting held within 60 days after a receipt of a signed assessment plan. 

Parents' Rights

Parents are notified of all their rights annually and at various stages within the special education process. Staff from the District, County Office of Education or SELPA are available to answer questions and provide assistance.
