Special Services

At Superior USD, we believe that all students can learn skills that will enhance the quality of their lives regardless of developmental disabilities, socio-economic status, race, gender, or cultural considerations. Our Special Services Department provides a safe and caring environment that encourages the acquisition of knowledge. In partnership with parents and our community, we accept the responsibility to teach all of our students so they are able to achieve their potential.

English Aquisition Services

Our English Acquisition Services gives students who are English language learners the opportunity to meet Arizona’s Academic Standards. Our goals are to:

  • provide students with instruction that will enable them to increase academic achievement and use English language skills to meet district and state learning standards;
  • provide instruction so that students acquire social and academic English language proficiency;
  • work collaboratively with families and community agencies in meeting the social, physical, and emotional needs of students; and
  • promote cross-cultural understanding and acceptance of diversity.

Paraprofessional Testing

SUSD now offers on-site paraprofessional testing. Testing is available on Tuesdays by appointment only, and the cost is $55. If you are interested in becoming a paraprofessional, contact our Special Services supervisor.
