The SELPA Administrators of California is a professional association that for most of our members involves a voluntary exchange of time and expertise between members in order to better fulfill the mission of SELPA, which is to champion educational access and opportunities for students with disabillities. Through this exchange of ideas and information, members become equipped to carry out all the complex aspects of SELPA leadership. Most of our members volunteer some of their time and talents to various committees and leadership positions. Through dynamic partnership and a healthy level of one-upsmanship, each member builds on their own knowledge and establishes a network of experts who can support them on specialized topics. Committee membership and descriptions, liaison assignments, and workgroup duties are outlined below.
