There are two categories of partnership: Single Charter Partner and Organization Partner. A Single Charter Partner is a SELPA member with one school (single CDS code). An Organization Partner is defined as a non-profit with one governing board or an organization with one Chief Executive Officer position that is vested with comprehensive operating authority for two or more SELPA member schools (multiple CDS codes).
The 2019-20 application process for membership beginning July 1, 2020 is a seven-stage process beginning with the Potential New Partner Meetings.
To be eligible to apply attendance is required at our Potential New Partner Meeting being held
Monday, March 16, 2020, in Long Beach. Please register here.
If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Carnahan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, if you are currently in operation, per Ed. Code, and to avoid any difficulty should you choose to join another SELPA, notice should be provided to your current SELPA one year and one day in advance of the school year you intend to leave (i.e., June 30, 2019 for the 2020-21 school year). We advise providing notice of intent to withdrawal to your authorizer, current SELPA, and CDE. If you do not provide this notice before the June 30 deadline, you would need to acquire a letter of agreed upon early release from your SELPA.
The importance of this communication is to ensure sufficient planning time for all involved and is required by law. Our process will require evidence of timely communication. We recommend sending these letters by certified mail with return receipt.
