The General Functions of Special Education

The Claremont Unified School District offers a full range of special education programs and services for approximately 800 students. The District is committed to providing appropriate services for handicapped students with an emphasis on collaborative models.

Special Education Services include such options as speech and language support, adapted physical education, resource specialist support, as well as specialized classes. All programs are provided on regular education campuses; the special education staff is incorporated into the total general education staff at all schools.

The Claremont Unified School District joins ten other school districts to form the East San Gabriel Special Education Local Plan ( SELPA ). These districts include Pomona, Bonita, Walnut, Covina Valley, West Covina, Glendora, Charter Oak, Baldwin Park, Bassett, Azusa, as well as Los Angeles County Office of Education. Although the majority of students are served in their home districts, there are a number of regionalized programs operated by individual districts for all students in the SELPA. Consequently some Claremont special education students participate in specialized programs in Pomona, Bonita, Covina Valley, West Covina, and Azusa School Districts.
