Summary As required by Ed Code Sections 56205, 56205(b)(2) and 56195.7, each SELPA Local Plan document requires a service plan component and a budget plan that are updated annually.

In submitting the Local Plan documents, the following is required: the Certification of the Revised Annual Service Plan, and the CASEMIS Service descriptions and the Service Plan Forms for the 2010-2011 school year. These documents are due to the California Department of Education on or before November 1, 2011. Copies of these documents are attached for the Board of Education's review and approval.

Due to a court case out of Los Angeles County, the California Department of Education (CDE) is requiring Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs) to revise their 2011-12 Annual Service Plan to include students identified as special education who are in county jails. To document these services, all service plans must contain evidence that the SELPA has arranged for services, as needed, in community, court schools and county jails. SELPAs retain responsibility for services for all identified students to age 22 regardless of the student's placement.

Even if the SELPA does not currently have any students in county jails or any other program mentioned above, each SELPA needs to have a plan in place to serve the students.

The Annual Service Plan must include a complete detailed description of Special Education Services provided by each district and/or SELPA. The description must include the nature of the services, including related services and the physical location where the services are provided.

The Service Plan description must demonstrate that all individuals with exceptional needs have access to services and instruction appropriate to meet their needs as specified in their individual education program.

Accordingly, the Mt. Diablo Unified School District SELPA's Annual Service Plan has been updated and revised, as require the California Department of Education.

The completion of the process will be documented by evidence that a SELPA level public hearing has been held to adopt these items. The signed documents will be submitted to the California Department of Education along with evidence that a public hearing was held.
