Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA)

A Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) within our school district is an administrative entity established to ensure the delivery of special education services to students with disabilities. Within our district, the SELPA coordinates the planning, funding, and implementation of special education programs and support services for eligible students.

The primary objectives of our district's SELPA include:

  1. Developing and maintaining a local plan for the provision of special education services tailored to the needs of students within our district.
  2. Allocating resources, including state and federal funding, to support the delivery of special education programs and services.
  3. Collaborating with school staff, families, and community partners to assess student needs, develop individualized education plans (IEPs), and provide appropriate support services.
  4. Providing professional development and training opportunities for educators and staff members involved in special education.
  5. Ensuring compliance with federal and state laws governing the education of students with disabilities, including the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the California Education Code.

Our district's SELPA operates under the oversight of a local plan area governing board, which may include representatives from our district, charter schools, and parent stakeholders. Through this collaborative approach, our SELPA strives to ensure that all students with disabilities have access to a high-quality education that meets their unique needs, fosters their academic growth, and supports their social and emotional development.
