Updating the Local Allocation Policy—A Guided Process for SELPAs and LEAs

Changing Education Code and increasing AB 602 special education base rates means that every Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) should review and evaluate necessary changes and amendments to their local allocation model and policy. This online webinar series will offer the tools and resources to support local allocation plan discussions and strategies for organizing, reviewing, and updating the SELPA allocation model to capture new laws, local needs, and state requirements.

The presenters will provide tips on ways to support the governance council and local educational agency (LEA) members in reaching consensus on the equitable use of local resources through a consensus building process focused on the needs and outcomes of students with disabilities.

Attendees will receive tips on how to support the governance council and LEA members in making shared decisions around the equitable use of local resources in an inclusive, fiscally responsible, and collaborative manner.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is for SELPA leaders, fiscal staff supporting special education, governance council members, special education directors, and educational partners impacted by SELPA allocation policy. Teams are encouraged to attend.
