  • The District actively seeks out and accepts referrals to assess children who may have a disability.
  • Assessment is provided at no cost to the parent.
  • Concerns regarding a child’s need for special education can be presented by a parent or by any person concerned about a child.
  • Parent involvement and agreement is obtained prior to any further action.

text messag elogo

Starting Friday, October 31, 2019, Tracy Unified School District will relaunch the text message notification feature for parents and staff as part of our School Messenger notification system.

Text message recipients will receive a text message alert from the short code, or short set of numbers, 67587 Tracy USD.  The text message will read as follows:

“You're registered 4 SchoolMessenger. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help. Std msg/data rates apply. Freq varies. schoolmessenger.com/tm

If you received this kind of message, you are already opted into text messages from your child's school or TUSD and no further steps are needed to sign up. If you are not interested in receiving text messages from your school or district, you can opt out at any time by replying STOP.  

Parents who do not have cellphone numbers or change cell phone numbers during the school year should update their contact information through the Aeries Parent Portal so you may start receiving text message notification.
