Special Education

Mission Statement

The mission of the Moreno Valley Unified School District is to provide an equitable education for all students to be prepared for college and/or a viable career path for a successful life.


Philosophy Statement

Keeping with the MVUSD expectations in "Excellence on Purpose," the Moreno Valley Unified School District SELPA provides programs and services that allow students to develop academic and vocational potential, social responsibility, and self-worth.


 The SELPA works to ensure that all individuals with exceptional needs from birth through age 21 are correctly identified, assessed, and provided a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) with programs and services designed to meet their unique needs in the least restrictive environment(LRE).


Special Education is instruction designed to meet the unique learning needs of individual students with disabilities from 3 to 21 years of age. It is defined by California Education Code Section 56031, as specially designated instruction at no cost to the parents to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. Special education services may be provided in a variety of educational settings, but are required by the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA) to be delivered in the least restrictive environment (LRE).

Hello parents! We need your help! As part of our compliance monitoring with the state department of education, we are required to have parents complete a survey to provide input on special education services in Moreno Valley. The results of the survey will be used to help improve services for our students and their families. The “Seeds of Partnership” survey, can be accessed online using the following link:
