Comprehensive Local Plan For Special Education   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board desires to provide a high-quality education for all students, including those with disabilities. The Board recognizes that all individuals with disabilities have the right to receive a free and appropriate public education.

The district shall provide special education instruction and services for individuals with exceptional needs in accordance with the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

(cf. 6164.4 - Identification of Individuals for Special Education)

Modifications and/or special services and aids shall also be provided as needed for students who are eligible for services under Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act and related federal regulations.

(cf. 6164.6 - Identification and Education Under Section 504)

In order to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities and employ staff with adequate expertise for this purpose, the district participates as a member of the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA).

The Superintendent/Principal or designee shall extend the district's full cooperation to the SELPA. The policies and procedures of the SELPA shall be applied as policies and regulations of this district, with the exception of those that apply to complaints, unless the local plan specifically authorizes the district to operate under its own policies and regulations.

(cf. 1312.3 - Uniform Complaint Procedures)

In accordance with selection procedures described in the SELPA plan, the Board shall appoint district representatives to the SELPA's community advisory committee. This committee shall make suggestions for the development, amendment and review of the local plan, recommend annual priorities, promote parent/guardian and community involvement, assist in parent/guardian education, and support activities on behalf of individuals with exceptional needs.
