To be eligible for continuing special education services through the GUHSD, all three of the following conditions must be met:
1. The student has completed the 8th grade, has not received a regular high school diploma, and has not yet reached the age of 22.
If your student has not completed the 8th grade, please contact the elementary/middle school district where you reside. For a list of the school districts in the East County and their websites/phone numbers, click on East County School Districts.
For students who have received a regular high school diploma or are 22 years of age and older, contact:
> San Diego Regional Center (for students with developmental disabilities)
> Adult School (for students 18 years of age and older wanting to obtain a high school diploma - no special education services available)
> Community Colleges Disabled Student Services (for students wanting to continue their education)
> Regional Occupation Program (ROP) (for students wanting to obtain job skills).
2. The student was receiving special education services at their last school of attendance.
If your student received special education services in the past (but not at the last school or attendance) or you would like your student considered for initial special education services, please contact the school psychologist at your student's high school of residence.
