Comprehensive Local Plan For Special Education   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education recognizes that each individual is unique, and that while the general education program is appropriate for most students, children with disabilities may require special education and related services in accordance with the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and California Education Code. The board desires to provide a free appropriate public education to all individuals with disabilities, preschool age through eighth grade, who reside in the district, including children who have been suspended or expelled or placed by the district in a nonpublic, nonsectarian school.

Students shall be referred for special education instruction and services only after the resources of the regular education program have been considered, and where appropriate, utilized. (Education Code 56303)

(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 North Inland Special Education Region (NISER). NISER is a Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA), as designated by the California Department of Education.

The board has approved the local plan for the provision of special education services in the NISER/SELPA. The SELPA shall administer the local plan and the allocation of funds. (Education Code 56195)

(cf. 1220 - Citizen Advisory Committees)

The superintendent or designee shall extend the district's full cooperation to the SELPA. The board directs that the policies and procedures of the SELPA be applied as board policies (BP) and administrative regulations (AR) of this district, with the exception of those that apply to complaints, including, but not limited to:
