Welcome to TUHSD Special Education

  • Welcome to the Tempe Union High School District Special Education 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 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 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 events to students and their families so that they have access to community and state resources as they get ready for that next step after graduation. Please see below for a link to find out more about our Positive Outcomes Transition Series. Keep an eye out for regular email updates on these events and also to submit questions to the Special Education Information Advisory Council each quarter.

    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.
