The Contra Costa SELPA works directly with all fifteen of
our SELPA member districts and the Contra Costa County Office
of Education (CCCOE) to ensure that appropriate programs
and services are available for students with disabilities

We take enormous pride in our high quality professional
development events and trainings we offer for our region
districts and we are a recognized leader in the area of

I have spent my career working to make a difference for
students with disabilities and it is my pleasure to serve
alongside our team of dedicated Contra Costa SELPA staff
and the talented and committed district directors of our
region. The Contra Costa SELPA is committed to working in
a collaborative manner to provide quality educational services
and leadership to our districts, their educators, families,
and above all, our students.
