Introduction to Special Education
Morgan Hill Unified School District (MHUSD) provides support to all students with disabilities. We partner with other local school districts as well as the Santa Clara County Office of Education (COE) to insure that programs are located within our Special Education Local Planning Area (SELPA).
Morgan Hill Unified School District is a member of the South East Consortium SELPA, one of 6 SELPAS in Santa Clara County. The SE Consortium SELPA coordinates with 11 school districts and the County Office of Education to provide a continuum of programs and services for individuals with disabilities, from birth through 22 years of age. Additionally, the SELPA Community Advisory Committee (CAC) parent group provides support, information, training opportunities, and valuable resources for parents, guardians and the local community. The SE SELPA Office is located in Mt. Pleasant School District. For more information about the SELPA and the CAC please visit the SE SELPA website at https://www.mpesd.org/domain/
