Special Education

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) defines special education as, "Specially designed instruction, provided at no cost to parents, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability."
Huntington Beach City School District's mission is to develop and provide quality instructional programs to students with disabilities.  It is our goal for all students to achieve academically, socially and emotionally.
Huntington Beach City School District is part of a five district Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA).  The West Orange County Consortium for Special Education (WOCCSE) includes:
  • Ocean View School District
  • Fountain Valley School District
  • Westminster School District
  • Huntington Beach City School District
  • Huntington Beach Union High School District
These five districts have joined together to provide special education programs and services to students with special needs.
