What does a SELPA do?
The Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) is a state-mandated association which oversees and facilitates education services for students with disabilities. The SELPA office for Placer County is located at the Placer County Office of Education and its operations are cooperatively governed by the Placer County Superintendent of Schools and member district superintendents. SELPA's role is to ensure that the specialized educational needs of each disabled student in the county are appropriately met. To fulfill this purpose, SELPA oversees the allocation of over $40 million annually distributed to local education agencies for special education. SELPA also offers an array of trainings and dispute resolution services for the county.

How do I resolve a complaint with my child's special education services?
If you are experiencing a problem with your child's special education program, there is a specific procedure that you should follow to get your complaint resolved. If your complaint involves an individual teacher or other member of the school staff, it is suggested that you contact him/her directly to discuss your concerns and try to resolve the problem informally. If this fails, contact the principal or vice principal of the school. If this also produces unsatisfactory results or you are uncertain how to proceed, contact the district office for assistance. If you are unable to resolve the dispute, you may contact the Placer County SELPA's Alternative Dispute Resolution team to provide facilitated support as a neutral third party. This resource is available to resolve disagreements between schools and the families of all children in special education in Placer County. Each district has a SELPA Program specialist assigned to support ADR activities.
To find contact information for your district, click here. If you would like contact information for a particular district, please see our district directory.
What is ADR and how do I access it?
ADR program is a method of problem resolution that involves getting the two disputing parties (family and school) to talk through a conflict to reach a mutually agreeable solution. A parent or district can access any of the ADR components by calling the assigned SELPA Program Specialist. The program components include: phone consultation and conflict assessment by the Program Specialist, IEP attendance as a neutral third party, IEP facilitation and informal mediation. All information remains confidential unless permission is given to share it. See the
Program Specialist Assignements document for more information.
Where do I get my student's records?
Contact the school your child is attending to access educational records. If you have a child attending a regionalized PCOE special education program you may contact the special education director of the district you reside in or the PCOE program administrator for that classroom.
