Resources to Support Upcoming Special Education Deadline

  • Print

June 20, 2011 Charter schools seeking increased independence and flexibility for special education should consider seeking status as a local educational agency (LEA) for special education by securing membership in a special education local plan area (SELPA).

If your school is interested in exploring LEA status for special education for the 2012-2013 school year, you must submit a letter notifying your existing District and SELPA of your intent to exit the SELPA by June 30, 2011.
