Temple City Unified School District provides special education services to eligible children to meet their educational needs under federal IDEA, Part B, and state regulations. Special education services focus on both the developmental needs of the child and school readiness. These services are child-centered and are individualized depending on the intensity of their needs. Program options may include special day classes, preschool services, and individual or small group therapies, based on an Individualized Educational Program (IEP). All public education services, including assessment for eligibility, are free.
The federal policy directs school districts to provide preschool special education services in the least restrictive environment (LRE). Compliance with LRE requires, in most cases, that children with disabilities participate in inclusive early care and education settings alongside typically developing children. At TCELA, we offer a range of opportunities for students to socialize and learn with their typically developing peers. Based on the child’s IEP, a student may receive all or part of their special education services in the regular preschool program setting. In other cases, a separate classroom for higher levels of support is appropriate.
All services written into a child’s IEP can be provided at TCELA including Specialized Academic Instruction, Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Behavior Intervention Services, and many more.
For questions pertaining to the Special Education Department, please call their office at (626)548-5020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child requires transportation services per their IEP, the Special Education Department will arrange for your child’s transportation to and from TCELA. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s case manager.
