The Tehama County SELPA Local Plan provides information regarding our governance model, budget plan, and services
In 1977 eighteen school districts of Tehama County joined together with the Tehama County Department of Education to form a consortium with the County Department serving as the Administrative Unit for special education. This consortium is known as the Tehama County Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). The function of the Special Education Local Plan Area and participating local education agencies is to provide a quality educational program appropriate to the needs of each eligible child with a disability, who resides within the Local Plan Area, and to those eligible individuals who are residents of other SELPAs who may be in need of services, and who attend programs in this region. Currently the SELPA is comprised of 13 Districts, 1 County Office, and 2 Charter LEAs. The SELPA leadership model is to provide support to students, families, and our education partners to ensure the full continuum of services is offered for EVERY student.
