Special Education Local Plan Area

  • What is a SELPA?

    In 1977, all school districts and county school offices in California were required to form geographical regions of sufficient size and scope to provide for all special education service needs of children residing within the region’s boundaries. Each region became known as a Special Education Local Plan Area – SELPA. Today, there are over 130 SELPAs in the State.  The SELPA governance structures vary in form, including models for Multi-District SELPAs, Multi-District/County Office SELPAs, Single District SELPAs, Multi-District/Multi-County SELPAs, County SELPAs with Joint Powers Agreements, and Charter only SELPAs.  Size and scope also varies across the state.  Each SELPA has a Local Plan describing how it provides special education services.  Specific components to be included in the Local Plan are delineated in the Education Code.
