Special Education

The San Mateo-Foster City School District provides services for students who are found to be eligible for special education based on federal and state criteria. A wide range of placements and services are available to special education students based on their Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The District is committed to providing every student in special education with a high-quality, free and appropriate public education based on their unique, individual needs. We strive to establish and maintain collaborative relationships with all parents and families of special education students as we work together on behalf of students.
