Exceptional Student Services (ESS)

Welcome to the Exceptional Student Services Page!

  • The Agua Fria Union High School District Exceptional Student Services Department's goal is to provide an appropriate and meaningful education for all of our students with special needs and to support parents, teachers and schools in this endeavor.  Student success is our success.

    Beliefs:

    • All students are to be supported in the least restrictive environment.

    • All students have the right to access general education opportunities.

    • All students are part of the school community.  Participation and progress in a curriculum aligned to state standards is facilitated through instructional best practices and IEP guidelines. 

    • All students learn and grow in an inclusive environment.

     

    Eligibility Information:

    If your child has a learning, communication, physical, mental, or emotional disability, please confer with the local school principal or the district Exceptional Student Services Department to determine the best placement for your child.
