Dear Parents,
Welcome to the San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District Special Education Department. We look forward to working with you to identify the best placement that will meet the educational needs of your child.
Upon establishing proof of residence within the SLV District, the staff at your school of residence can advise you whether you can enroll your student there, or if you must contact the special education staff at the District Office for your student's placement. At that point, the special education staff will be glad to meet with you to review all of the pertinent information, including two proofs of residency, assessment information, and your child's Individualized Education Program (IEP) to determine the appropriate placement for your child.
