An Introduction to Special Education
The Lynwood Unified School District is committed to serving the educational needs of each of our students. Each school in the District has a process that brings together the parent or guardian, the student (if appropriate) and school personnel to address any problems that interfere with a student’s success in school. This team of people is known as a Student Study Team (SST). This team is responsible for identifying the student’s needs and developing a plan to enable the student to be successful.
