The California Department of Education (CDE) requires that each SELPA annually obtain approval from its governing board and CAC for budget and service plans following a public hearing.
The information gathered at the meeting will inform SFUSD Special Education and CAC priorities for the coming year.
The public can participate via Zoom or attend in person at Support for Families,1663 Mission St., Suite 700.
What is a Special Education Local Plan Area?
"In 1977, all California school districts and county school offices were mandated to form consortiums in geographical regions of sufficient size and scope to provide for all special education service needs of children residing within the region boundaries. Each region, Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA), developed a local plan describing how it would provide special education services. San Francisco Unified School District is it's own single district SELPA.
SELPAs are dedicated to the belief that all students can learn and that special needs students must be guaranteed equal opportunity to become contributing members of society. SELPAs facilitate high quality educational programs and services for special needs students and training for parents and educators. The SELPA collaborates with county agencies and school districts to develop and maintain healthy and enriching environments in which special needs students and families can live and succeed."
