Welcome to Southwest SELPA..
What is SELPA?
In 1977, all school districts and county school offices were required to form geographical regions of sufficient size and scope to provide for all special education service needs of children residing within the region boundaries. Each region (Special Education Local Plan Area) developed a local plan describing how it would provide special education services. Today, there are approximately 125 SELPAs in the state.
- Support and resources for students and families; providing events and tools for student success.
- Education, information and resources for educators looking to improve interaction with special needs students.
