Vista Unified School District Special Education Task Force

A Special Education Task Force was commissioned by the Vista School Board and met one time a month from August 2012 to May 2013. The Special Education Task Force analyzed the current status of the Special Education program and defined an instructional delivery model that would ensure all students receive the highest level of service and support to meet the challenging demands of college and career. The Special Education Task Force was comprised of representatives from all constituency groups including teachers, parents, and administrators.


Special Education Strategic Plan

The Special Education Strategic Plan was officially adopted by the Vista Unified School District Board of Trustees on June 27, 2013. This was the culmination of a significant effort put forth by all representatives of the Special Education Task Force. The School Board members and Superintendent Vodicka publicly commended each member of the Task Force for their efforts and commitment to the students of Vista Unified.

The adoption of the Strategic Plan is the final step for the Task Force. From this point forward, the Special Education Department will be working in collaboration with the Curriculum and Instruction Department and the Student Services Department to implement the five service priority areas over the course of the 2013-2014 school year. During the implementation phase, specific policies and procedures will be developed to ensure that academic and behavioral program supports are individualized for the needs of each student based on their Individualized Education Program.
