Special Education is an integral part of the public education system.
It is specifically designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a
child with a disability. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
emphasizes the student's participation in the general education
curriculum and expands the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team
to include general education teachers. Under IDEA students who are
eligible for special education have the right to a Free and Appropriate
Public Education (FAPE). Santa Cruz City Schools offers a full range of service options for eligible students.
