Special Education Department Vision

Through the use of evidence-based and equity minded practices along with specialized trainings, the Morgan Hill Unified School District Special Education Department prepares learners to be participating and productive members of society to their greatest capacity with focus on closing opportunity gaps. 


Our Mission

The Morgan Hill Unified School District Special Education Department will partner with parents and the community in order to receive high-quality education and ensure the students' needs are met through differentiated instruction with an emphasis on academics, social, emotional and self-regulated skills. As a team, we foster an understanding of individual student needs and differences in order to maximize learning opportunities and social interaction with same-aged peers through inclusive practices. 

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).
