Orinda Union School District provides special education services to eligible students in Kindergarten-8th grade, as well as preschool children ages three to five years old. Approximately 10% of the total student population receives special education services.
Each of the four elementary schools and the Orinda Intermediate School has a Resource Specialist Program. Related services include speech-language therapy, occupational therapy and psychological services. The Intensive Learning Center located at Wagner Ranch School meets the needs of students in primary grades from schools throughout the District. An itinerant inclusion specialist supports students at the elementary schools. The OIS inclusion program includes two periods of Community-Based Instruction/Skill Development.
Students whose needs cannot be met within the district receive special education service through Contra Costa County Office of Education special day classes.
Preschool students requiring special education are served in regional programs operated among the Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda and Walnut Creek School districts. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
