Special Education

The Dos Palos Oro Loma Department of Students Services for Special Education is dedicated to identifying, locating, and assessing all district students aged 3-12 years of age who may have a disability.  We provide appropriate support and /or related services to those students who qualify for special education.

Parents who suspect their child may need additional services or interventions should make an appointment with their child’s teacher regarding their concerns. The teacher would then consult with staff and begin implementing other interventions such as; small group instruction, modified assignments, and peer tutoring.  When interventions do not lead to success, the next level of support includes the Student Study Team (SST). This team includes teachers, other school experts, and parents, who will formulate a plan to support the student. If the child continues to exhibit difficulties after implementing the interventions, the team may refer them for formal testing.  We aim to find the least restrictive and most beneficial environment for our students.

An Individualized Educational Planning Team will meet to review the assessment information.  They will determine eligibility and develop appropriate educational goals and objectives. The Individualized Educational Plan(IEP) is reviewed at least yearly.

For more information, please feel free to contact the Student Services Office. To request a copy of a student’s IEP, don't hesitate to contact Tara Hill, Maria Guadian, or Jessica Corachado.
