Exceptional Student Services

  • Exceptional Student

  • Students with disabilities are to be provided with an education in the least restrictive environment possible, and to the maximum extent appropriate, educated with non-disabled students.

  • The goal of the MUSD Exceptional Student Services Department  is to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for all students with disabilities. Our district offers a continuum of service options for students between the ages of 3 and 21.

    Services are delivered in the student’s least restrictive environment, at no cost to the family, based on needs determined by the Individual Education Plan (IEP).

    • Autism (A)
