• Preschool Peers

    The DVUSD Developmental Preschool Classroom provides free educational services for children who qualify for special education in accordance with federal and state regulations. Children ineligible for special education may attend preschool on a tuition basis as 'preschool peers'. The practice is based on the belief that integrating non-disabled peers into special education classrooms proves beneficial for the children and families involved.
    The school district determines the tuition scale and will provide a fee schedule on each campus. Our rates are based on an annual fee and prorated monthly as follows: The 4-day classroom is $175 per month due on the 1st school day of each month. Any tuition payment not received by the 5th day may be assessed a $15 late fee. Tuition will be the same whether your child attends class and regardless of the number of school days during the week. There are no refunds or credits for absence, illness, or when school is closed. There is a 10% discount for siblings and DVUSD employees.
    As a provision of their Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), children who qualify for special education services may receive specialized transportation to and from school. Preschool peers, however, are ineligible to receive transportation.
    Policies and Procedures
    To enroll as a preschool peer, children must demonstrate age appropriate development in motor, communication, self-help (including being completely potty-trained), and cognitive, social and emotional domains.
