Special Education Local Plan Area
In California, every local education agency (LEA) is required to belong to a Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). The SELPA is a consortia of LEAs responsible for the development of special education policies and procedures, distribution of federal and state special education funds, and providing a range of professional development pertaining to special education. With this support, the charter SELPA’s partners continue to demonstrate the capacity to provide high-quality special education programs to their students.
Heartland Charter School belongs to the Los Angeles County Charter SELPA, which provides a cooperative model designed to ensure special education programs are available for all students with disabilities.
