North Region SELPA Governance
The North Region SELPA is a multi-district SELPA comprised of five Local Education Agencies (LEAs) joined together to provide for the coordinated delivery of programs and services to students with disabilities. The service area of the North Region SELPA incudes the geographic boundaries of the Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Emery, and Piedmont Unified School Districts.
The governance and administrative structure of the North Region SELPA consists of the Administrative Unit, the SELPA Director, the LEA School Boards, the SELPA Policy Board, and the Community Advisory Committee.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 20 United States Code (20 USC) Section 1400 et seq. and related federal regulations, require a continuum of regional program options to meet students with disabilities needs for special education and related services. The California Department of Education (CDE) established guidelines for the coordinated development and submission of Local Plan components that ensure this continuum of program options. SELPAs ensure access to special education and services for all students with disabilities residing within the geographic areas served by each Local Plan. Beginning July 1, 2020, all SELPAs are required to submit a Local Plan, using CDE templates.
