Welcome to the Poway Unified School District Special Education Department. We look forward to working with you to identify the best placement that will meet the educational needs of your child. It is important to note that the enrollment process in our district begins with verification of residency at your neighborhood school. If you are not aware of which school is in your neighborhood use the menu and select “Address Lookup.” The Address Lookup allows you to enter your home address and will list your neighborhood schools.
Upon establishing proof of residence within the PUSD boundaries, the staff at your school of residence can advise you whether you can enroll your student there or if you must contact the special education staff at the district office for your student’s placement. At that point, the special education staff will be glad to meet with you to review all the pertinent information, including two proofs of residency, assessment information and your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) to determine the appropriate placement for your child.
