The Twin Rivers Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) was approved for operation July 1, 2019. The SELPA is responsible for providing all the special education service needs of children residing within the district’s boundaries. SELPA facilitates high quality educational programs and services for special needs students, ensures the availability of a full continuum of program options, and provides technical assistance and professional development. Additionally, SELPA supports students and families with parent training and dispute resolution
Twin Rivers takes great pride in our shared commitment to student success. Working together with our families and community partners, we can ensure that all children will have the appropriate level of support to reach their full potential and have a successful school experience in Twin Rivers.
Community Advisory Committees (CAC) are a vital component of an effective Special Education Program. CACs have specific and important responsibilities. Every Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) is required to establish a Community Advisory Committee. The CAC assists in advising local governing boards about the Local Plan, annual priorities, parent education and other specified Special Education related activities.
CACs are required by law and reflect the community they serve. They are comprised of a combination of parents, educators, representatives of public and private agencies and individuals concerned with the needs of individuals with disabilities. The majority of CAC members must be parents of students residing in the district, and the majority of these parents must be parents of students with special needs. Candidates are approved by their governing Board in accordance with locally determined selection procedures.
