About Us

The Department for Special Education and the Vallejo City Unified School District SELPA provides leadership to schools so that all students will have educational success.  We focus on District Goals in the areas of Equity, Excellence, Educational Effectiveness and Economic Sustainability.  We help ensure that Vallejo's students with special needs are given the support they need in general education and can also access, as needed, a continuum of specialized instruction through their Individualized Education Program (IEP).  As per Federal Law, the specialized instruction should always meet the unique needs of the student, in all areas of suspected disability, and be reasonably calculated to provide educational benefit in the least restrictive environment.
