Shasta County Special Education Local Plan Area Inter-District Procedures INTER DISTRICT PROCEDURES 1. INTRODUCTION The district of residence of students with exceptional needs is responsible for providing a free appropriate public education (“FAPE”) to all students identified as eligible for special education and related services residing within its geographical boundaries. This responsibility includes providing a continuum of placement options to meet the unique needs of eligible students in the least restrictive environment. As part of the Shasta County SELPA’s efforts to coordinate the provision of a full continuum of special education and related services options, districts may enter into agreements whereby students can be placed in other member district’s/LEA’s special education programs when the student’s IEP team deems it appropriate (“IEP Team referrals”). In addition, students receiving special education services may seek to attend school in a district other than their district of residence via a parent request (“inter-district transfers”). A uniform method of handling these IEP Team referrals for out of district placements as well as inter-district transfers (under California Education Code sections 46600 et seq.) will promote a fast, efficient and fair functioning of the inter-district attendance system within the Shasta County SELPA, which will inure to the benefit of effected students. It is the intent of the Shasta County SELPA that students with disabilities are treated in a manner equal to their non-disabled peers in the administration of special education referrals and related inter-district attendance agreements and memorandum of understanding (MOU). 2. DEFINITION OF TERMS 2.1 District of Service (“DOS”) means the district that is receiving the student from the district of residence in order to provide a program and/or services to a student. 2.2 District of Residence (“DOR”) means the school district in which a student resides for purposes of school attendance. 2.3 Parent means the student’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s). 3. TRANSFER OF PUPILS UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF EDUCATION CODE SECTION 46600 (i.e., inter-district attendance at parents’ request and preference for reasons other than employment).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
