Get Involved!

Our school offers some great programs to help foster your child's education as well as social skills. We strive to incorporate programs that will assist your child's positive growth, both now and for their future.

Special Education Preschool

Tiffany 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 School District Office.

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. Referral for identification of a child who has 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

Language Program

The Chula Vista Elementary School District is committed to providing world-class education opportunities to all students by supporting the linguistic and educational needs

of who are in the process of acquiring the academic English they need to fully and successfully participate in a global society.


A Home Language Survey is completed by parents upon enrollment in a California public school and is used to determine if there is a language other than English spoken

in the home. If the survey indicates that a language other than English is spoken in the home, the student is tested for English proficiency utilizing the Initial English Language

Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). Students who do not score Initial Fluent English Proficient on the Initial ELPAC are identified as English Learner and qualify

for EL services. Accurate completion of the Home Language Survey is critical in ensuring services and support for English Language Learners to acquire English language

proficiency and academic achievement.

All classroom instruction is provided in English. Support for English Learners include:

  • English Learner (EL) Identification and Placement Language Proficiency Assessment and Progress Monitoring
  • Teacher Training in Support of English Learners
  • Language Acquisition Instructional Programs
  • Integrated and Designated English Language Development
  • Parent Involvement and Leadership Development
  • Instructional support for language, literacy, and academic content for English Learners
  • Translation and interpretation services for Korean, Tagalog, Japanese and Arabic are available for parent and student support by calling (619) 425-9600, ext. 1526.
