The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 20 United States Code (20 USC) Section 1400 et seq. and related federal regulations, require a continuum of regional program options to meet students with disabilities needs for special education and related services. The California Department of Education (CDE) established guidelines for the coordinated development and submission of Local Plan components that ensure this continuum of program options. SELPAs ensure access to special education and services for all students with disabilities residing within the geographic areas served by each Local Plan. The Albany Unified School District is a member of the North Region SELPA, and below are the SELPA's Local Plan documents.
