Special Education Department

San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD) offers a comprehensive range of special education and related services for approximately 550 students with special needs from ages three through 22. The School District is committed to providing a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) for students with established special education eligibilities. SGUSD is home to highly regarded programming, innovative staff, and solid community partnerships. All students with special needs have access to quality educational opportunities. 

SGUSD joins thirteen other school districts to form the West San Gabriel Valley Special Education Local Plan Area (WSGV SELPA). Although the majority of students are served in the district, there are a number of regionalized programs operated by individual districts for all students in the WSGV SELPA. As a result, some students with special needs who are residents of San Gabriel participate in specialized programs in neighboring school districts.
