The Washington Unified School District offers services and programs for children and youth with disabilities consistent with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and California state law. 

Each student with a disability, who is eligible for Special Education Services, is provided with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) based on that student's  unique needs. The IEP identifies and outlines those services that the student will require to benefit from their right to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE).

Washington Unified School District provides such services to eligible students.
