We are dedicated to developing and implementing a continum of services to meet the needs of ALL our students. We understand the diverse learning needs of each of our students.

Welcome to our district where "ALL means ALL."

ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS (ELL)

CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS (ELL) PAGE
English Language Learners (ELL) are a diverse population of students who are learning English in school. They come from numerous cultural and economic backgrounds. Although many ELL students have developed basic communication skills in English, they struggle with academic language. This disconnect can make classroom instruction difficult, and it requires modified instruction in the student’s academic courses.

EXCEPTIONAL STUDENT SERVICES (ESS)

Exceptional Student Services (ESS) provides education to students who, because of an identified disability, require specially designed instruction and related services in order to receive a free, appropriate public education. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) team determines specific services to meet the unique needs of each student which may include counseling, technology devices, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, transportation, or other supports.

Gifted & Talented Education

Gifted and talented students are children of lawful school age who, due to superior intellect and/or advanced learning ability, are not afforded an opportunity for otherwise attainable progress and development in regular classroom instruction and who need comprehensive gifted education services to achieve levels that commensurate with the child's intellect and ability. Gifted education services are offered to all students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a verbal, quantitative, and/or nonverbal battery, or a composite score at or above the 95th percentile of a test included on the Arizona State-Approved Gifted Test List.

HOMEBOUND SERVICES
Homebound Services are provided for students when the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team determines that a student cannot benefit from participating in a school-based program. These students typically have significant medical or psychiatric needs, and input from an appropriate medical professional is necessary. Homebound services may be provided in extenuating circumstances as approved by the Director of Student Services.

PRIVATE DAY SCHOOLS 
Private Day Schools are provided for students when the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team determines that a student cannot benefit for participating in a comprehensive school-based program. These programs are more restrictive and require approval by the Director of Student Services. The following Private Day Schools are approved vendors for CGUHSD: Arizona Centers for Comprehensive Education & Life Skills (ACCEL), The Austin Center's for Exceptional Students (The ACES), Desert Choice Schools (DCS), and Southwest Education Center (SWEC). 

SELF-CONTAINED CLASSES | CROSS CATEGORICAL
These programs primarily serve students whose disabilities are so significant that the student cannot benefit or make progress in a less-restrictive environment at the main campus. These students may have a variety of disabilities and typically have multiple needs in the areas of communication development, motor skills, social interaction, vision and hearing deficits, and cognitive delays.

SELF-CONTAINED CLASSES | EMOTIONAL & BEHAVIORAL
These programs primarily serve students whose emotional and behavioral needs interfere with their ability to benefit from participating in comprehensive educational programs. Although this specialized program is located on the main campuses, services are provided in a self-contained setting. These students typically require a highly structured program, behavioral interventions, social skill development, and opportunities for growth in interpersonal skills.
