Welcome to TUHSD Student Services/ Special Education

  • Welcome to the Tempe Union High School District Student Services Department. Our goal is to ensure students with disabilities are given every opportunity to access a free and appropriate education. We believe in supporting a culture of high expectations to promote excellence for the future of our students. 

    A team of highly qualified professionals, families, and students collaborate to make individual educational decisions through the IEP and Section 504 process. We believe that everyone brings a valuable perspective that deserves representation when developing and implementing best practices. It is our intent to provide an equitable education that fosters student assets by highlighting successes. Addressing gaps is done through comprehensive evaluations and data review so the necessary specialized instruction and/or accommodations can take place. The education of your child, through access to appropriate programs and services, is our highest priority.  

    We are excited to bring more transition events to students and their families so that you have access to community and state resources as students get ready for that next step after graduation. We are also adding resources to our website geared towards students and families to share what is going on in our department and to connect you to local and state services. 

    We genuinely care about the health, safety, and education of your student and encourage you to contact your child’s Case Manager or school site’s Student Services Coordinator (SSC) if you have any questions or concerns regarding the individual needs of your student. If you need to reach me or my team at the District Office, please contact Rene Delgado at cdelgado@tempeunion.org or 480-345-3706.
