Special Education funding comes to the district through the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). Murrieta Valley USD is part of the Riverside County SELPA. SELPA and the Riverside County Office of Education have made specialized county programs located in neighboring districts available to Murrieta Valley USD students. Murrieta students have access to Audiological and Vision services provided through the Riverside County Office of Education.
The Riverside County SELPA Community Advisory Committee (CAC) has written a Parent Handbook (downloadable in English or Spanish) to help parents become effective members of the educational team. The Community Advisory Committee, a group mandated by state law, is a group of parents/guardians of children enrolled in special education and individuals with a personal or professional interest in securing appropriate services for children with disabilities. The CAC membership represents the geographic, ethnic, and socioeconomic makeup of our community.
