Sanger Unified School District

Sanger Unified

The difficult decision to close Sanger Unified campuses through Friday, June 5, 2020 has been made to ensure the safety and health of our students, staff and families. Campuses may be closed but learning will not stop. Sanger Unified schools are continuing to provide education opportunities during the suspension of on-site classes and programs. Our teams are working towards solving many of the logistic and technology issues surrounding distance learning and will keep you updated regularly.

Special Education

“Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."

Sanger Unified offers a continuum of special education services for students 3 through 21 years of age.

Special education services can include specialized instruction in the general education classroom, in a special education classroom, or in other settings. Classes and programs serving students with special needs are located in preschool, elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the district; however, not all programs are available at all sites. In instances where student needs require a site other than the homeschool, students are provided with transportation.
