Our Vision

  • Our Special Education Department will work collaboratively as a team of professionals to support all special education students to reach their true potential as learners.  The SCESD supports student success by ensuring students achieve proficient reading skills to prepare for middle school and high school success. Students participate in general education programs to the greatest extent possible. We are committed to supporting our students to achieve their best. 


Our Services

  • The Salinas City Elementary School District serves students with disabilities from birth to sixth grade. We provide a variety of services for children and students with severe or low-incidence disabilities through instructional programs divided into Early Education (birth to age 3), preschool and elementary.

    We operate classes to serve children with special needs, and classroom learning goals are aligned with state standards and the Preschool Learning Foundations.
