The South County SELPA believes in resolving differences in a collaborative way. The goal of the ADR program is to build a foundation for strong relationships between all stakeholders based on proactive and intentional planning. ADR may be requested by either parent(s) or the district. ADR is entirely voluntary and must be agreed to by all involved parties. Visit our page to learn more about ADR and resources.

Equity, Disproportionality & design (ED&D)
In February 2019, the South County SELPA received a grant to build capacity in California SELPAs to prevent disproportionality. This grant is part of the California Statewide System of Support and brings the South County SELPA into a network aimed at becoming a resource for school systems to improve student outcomes. South County SELPA believes that educators can design systems where every student realizes their full potential, and every voice is heard. Visit the ED&D page to learn more.
