Special Education

Our Special Education Department is located in the Mammoth-San Manuel School District office. We provide services to approximately 110 students with disabilities ranging in age from three years to 21 years old. We employ special education teachers at every grade level and provide a wide variety of instruction. Additionally, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, and psychological services are available to qualifying students.

Special Education Mission Statement

The mission of the Special Education Department is to seek out and identify students with special instructional needs and to provide students with disabilities high-quality instruction to promote their developmental growth, academic competency, vocational skills, and the confidence to succeed in school as well as in the workforce.

Special Education Resources

We know that when it comes to special education, it can be difficult to navigate your way through all the forms, laws, rights, and legal jargon. We are here to help families and students understand their rights when it comes to special education laws. Use this page as a resource to learn what services you and your child are entitled to. If you ever have any questions about the services your child receives or are unsure what your legal rights are, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
