WELCOME TO THE CHUSD SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT


Coalinga-Huron Unified School District offers a continuum of special education services for students 3 through 21 years of age.

Special education services can include specialized instruction in the general education classroom, in a special education classroom, or in other settings.  Classes and programs serving students with special needs are located in preschool, elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the  district; however, not all programs are available at all sites. In instances where student needs require a site other than the homeschool, students are provided with transportation.

Students may be eligible for special education if they have a disability and if their needs cannot be met through general education programs. The Individual with Disabilities Education Act lists the following disability categories:

 

  • Autism
  • Deaf and Blindness
  • Hearing Impairment, Including Deafness
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Orthopedic Impairment
  • Other Health Impaired
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Speech or Language Impairment
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Visual Impairment
