Superintendents & Operations Council
The Yuba County Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) is a multi-district/district-county plan. The Local Education Agency (LEA) membership of the Yuba County SELPA includes both in-county and out-of-geographic member LEAs.
The six member LEAs located within the Yuba County region include five school districts and one county office of education. Each have one vote on the Superintendent's Governance Council. It is important to note that per local charter petition documents, four of the six member LEAs have authorized one or more charter schools that operate as a “school within the district” for special education purposes. The four charter schools within the Yuba County region are represented in the SELPA governance council by the superintendent of the authorizing member LEA.
The four member charter LEAs located outside of the Yuba County region (also known as “out-of-geographic” charter LEAs) operate as a consortium of charter LEAs. The superintendent of the consortium has one vote in the SELPA governance structure. Within the out-of-geographic consortium, one charter LEA is located within the El Dorado County region and the other three charter LEAs are located within the Sacramento County region.
