About Contra Costa SELPA

Welcome to the website of the Contra Costa Special Education Local Plan Area. We hope you will take some time to explore and learn about the information and services we provide to parents, teachers, schools and districts to support the educational needs of students with disabilities.

The Contra Costa SELPA works directly with all fifteen of our member districts and the Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) to ensure that appropriate programs and services are available for students with disabilities under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 2004). In addition, we work closely with non-public schools and agencies, businesses, institutions of higher education, local, state, and national elected representatives to ensure that meeting the educational needs of our students is a community priority.

We take enormous pride in our high quality professional development events and trainings we offer and we are a recognized leader in the area of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and the Facilitated IEP process. Please visit out professional development event page and check back regularly for new offerings.

The Contra Costa SELPA is committed to working in a collaborative manner to provide quality educational services and leadership to our districts, their educators, families, and above all, our students.
