Special Education Program/Inclusion

Special Education and Inclusion

Alvarado proudly supports two Special Education classrooms and an inclusion education for the 10 percent of our students who have Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).

Special Education

We have two Special Education classes, one for grades K to 2 and one for grades 3 to 5.

Children from the Special Education classes are an important part of our community. They join their fellow students in the General Education classes for about a half-hour each day, for recess and for field trips.

Alvarado strives to include children with disabilities within the General Education program in a way that is determined by the child’s family and the school district. SFUSD provides a variety of services to support their needs.

Our Principal and staff are engaged, proactive and invested in inclusion, and dedicated to being a model school.

If you have specific questions about the Special Education classes or our inclusion program, please email webmaster@alvaradoschool.net, and someone will get back to you.
