The Special Education Department employs a team of highly qualified and dedicated professionals to implement wide-ranging educational and support programs that provide instruction and services to the students of the San Dieguito Union High School District in line with the District's vision and mission. 
We invite you to take some time to explore the resources embedded on our site. Should you need additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact program support providers below.
The District Office will be undergoing a modernization project with an estimated timeframe from July 2022 - October 2023. During this time, the Special Education Department will be temporarily located at Pacific Trails Middle School. Please contact us via phone and/or email. Because we are located on a school campus, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment if you would like to meet in person.

Thank you for your patience during this time!
