The San Joaquin County Office of Education operates the San Joaquin County Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) to serve students from birth to age 22, who are enrolled in SJCOE’s Special Education programs in Lincoln, Manteca, Escalon, Ripon, Linden, Lammersville, and Tracy Unified Districts, as well as Banta, Jefferson, and New Jerusalem Elementary School Districts. San Joaquin County SELPA coordinates special education efforts to ensure that resources are placed to meet student needs and provide services to students, families, and staff in school districts with fewer resources. San Joaquin County SELPA support is provided to these districts upon request and may include consultation and/or direct service. San Joaquin County SELPA acts as an interagency liaison and bridge between community resources and student needs. San Joaquin County SELPA has been in operation providing support to students, families, and districts since 1981.
