Special Education Preschool

Tiffany Elementary School has a Special Education Preschool (Special Day Class/SDC) on campus for children aged 3 - 4 who have been evaluated as having special needs. Placement in the class is determined by the Pupil Services Department at the Chula Vista Elementary School District.

Parents, community members, and others can refer children for possible Special Education services if the child is suspected of having a learning disability or any handicapping condition. Special Education programs are available for children with identified learning disabilities, which include language disorders. Other disabilities are emotional disorders, orthopedic, visual or hearing impairments, mental retardation, autism, and multi-handicaps. Referrals for identifying a child with a special need may come from parents, guardians, school staff, or community agencies.

If eligible for a district program, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed to meet the child's educational needs and will be reviewed annually.

Detailed information is available from Pupil Instructional Services at the Education Service and Support Center, (619) 425-9600, Ext.1700, or the district page linked below.
