Special Education


Beaumont Unified School District is committed to identifying, locating, and assessing all students within the district from birth through 21 years of age who may have disabilities, and providing appropriate support and/or related services to those students determined eligible by an educational evaluation.


We are dedicated to providing eligible students with disabilities a free and appropriate public education consistent with federal and state laws. For information call 951.797.5379 or email

These services are provided based on the individual needs of the student. After a team, comprised of educational professionals and the parent(s), determines a students’ unique needs and considers a variety of factors, an Individual Education Program (IEP) is created. An IEP is a legal document that describes how Beaumont Unified School District provides services to a student with exceptional needs. Special Education support and services are provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004).
Beaumont Unified School District offers a continuum of special education services.
Such options include: 
  • General education with special education supports and services
  • Special day classes
  • Special schools
  • Nonpublic schools (most restrictive placement requirements)
  • Home/Hospital
Additionally, the IEP team considers and determines if a student is in need of related services such as speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, adaptive physical education, and mobility training. If a student needs such services to benefit from the educational program, it is included in the student’s IEP.
