HCS has been in VR since spring 2013 and CDE is </p><p>scheduled to conduct its 6th on-site review there. DCJESD currently has only 1 on-site review </p><p>scheduled. </p><p>California Department of Education (CDE) completed a comparison of discipline data submitted </p><p>through California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS) and California </p><p>Special Education Management Information System (CASEMIS). LEAs with a ratio of less than </p><p>50% alignment between the two systems were targeted for corrective action which requires data </p><p>analysis and implementation of procedures to align the data entered into both systems. A report, </p><p>which is certified by the SELPA director must be submitted by each LEA. </p><p>Data Identified Non Compliance (DINC) data will be extracted by SELPA and uploaded to CDE. </p><p>LEAs have one week to make further corrections. LEAs were sent an email about how to set up the </p><p>CASEMIS spreadsheet. In that email theres a link for listing delay reasons which must be filled </p><p>out. </p><p>4.2 Behavior Advantage </p><p>Aaron Stabel from Behavior Consultants International presented an overview of the Behavior </p><p>Advantage Program. Aaron has partnered with a programmer to design behavior software called </p><p>Behavior Advantage to help streamline the Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Behavior </p><p>Intervention Plan (BIP). The software also acts as a training tool and to document evidence-based </p><p>practices. The software streamlines the FBA process by providing an iCloud-based tracking </p><p>system. Aaron will send out a flyer and contact information to each member. </p><p>4.3 Allocation Plan Update </p><p>Both the Executive Committee of the Council of Superintendents (ECCOS) and the </p><p>Program/Business Review Committee (PBRC) have begun discussion on potential changes to the </p><p>Allocation Plan. RJUHSD suggested the option of an Average Daily Attendance- (ADA) only </p><p>model while other PBRC members requested more information on special factors to be considered </p><p>with an ADA-only model. ECCOS members feel the current Allocation Plan is working well but </p><p>are open to discussion if minor changes are suggested. They asked that SEAC discuss the </p><p>Philosophy Statement to determine if the bullet that states we are all responsible for all special </p><p>needs students is still a guiding principle. EUSD does support this statement and shared information </p><p>on the steps they have taken to meet with RJUHSD to better communicate student and program </p><p>needs. Other members also agreed that this remains a guiding principle. Most members are in </p><p>agreement that any proposal should include consideration of special factors such as independent </p><p>study, small district protection, geographic location and preschool. </p><p>A document outlining the differences in the data used to generate Severely Handicapped (SH) </p><p>funding under the current Allocation Plan compared to the data used to generate Low Incidence </p><p>(LI) funding at the state level was also included. </p><p>5.0 Information Items: </p><p>5.1 Staff Development Update </p><p>The Staff Development survey results were distributed and feedback was requested from members </p><p>on additional training to be provided for next school year. Members requested a Tier 2 intervention </p><p>training for students with behavioral needs. SELPA suggested LEA staff also consider the </p></li><li><p>6 </p><p>Educational Services Positive Behavior Interventions Support (PBIS) trainings. SELPA is also </p><p>researching trainings for Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and goals for special education. </p><p>A Diagnostic Center 2015-2016 At-A-Glance Professional Development Opportunities was </p><p>included and members were asked for feedback on which of these training should be offered. The </p><p>Diagnostic Center is available to present at school sites for staff development days. SELPA will </p><p>contact the Diagnostic Center if LEAs are interested. </p><p>Feedback was also requested on Patty Schetters Professional Learning Community (PLC) training. </p><p>Some members still have a need for this but others do not. </p><p>Assistive Technology (AT), Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Specialist </p><p>Training and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) trainings are planned for the 2015-2016 school </p><p>year. In addition, the staff from Ventura County SELPA will present on Patterns of Strengths and </p><p>Weaknesses (PSW) for assessing English Learners (EL) and African American (AA) students. </p><p>5.2 Special Education Information System (SEIS)/California Special Education Management </p><p>Information System (CASEMIS) Update </p><p>SELPA requested feedback from members on any proposed changes to State SELPA or SEIS forms </p><p>by April 30. TTUSD asked for critical forms to be in Spanish. </p><p>5.3 Legislative Priorities </p><p>Legislative Sharing Day is on April 29 and the WPUSD director and 3 CAC members will be </p><p>attending with SELPA staff. The 2015 Legislative Day Priorities were attached for member </p><p>reference. </p><p> 5.4 Community Advisory Committee (CAC) Update CAC and SELPA hosted a Birds and Bees training at the Seavey Center on April 16 with 30 parents </p><p>participating. </p><p>CAC has scheduled a joint planning meeting on October 21, 2015 from 10:30am to 11:30am and </p><p>requested that SEAC members attend. </p><p>The Region 3 Special Education Parent Conference is May 8 and if any parents would like to attend </p><p>please have them contact the SELPA. </p><p>CAC is focusing on recruiting new CAC representatives for the 2015-2016 school year. Its </p><p>important for SELPA governance to have an active CAC Committee with a parent from each LEA. </p><p>5.5 Comments from Committee Members </p><p>RJUHSD requested feedback from members on the Unique Learning System. RJUHSD stated their </p><p>teachers are having difficulty with the math section while RCSD staff are having issues with the </p><p>copying preparation. PCOE is hosting a training on the advanced level on August 6 and 7, 2015 at </p><p>the Seavey Center and members can contact PCOE if staff is interested in attending. </p><p>The agenda for the Regional Program Specialist meeting on April 28 was distributed. </p><p>5.6 Executive Director Report </p><p>SELPA forwarded the annual CDE reminder for graduation requirements to members. </p><p>The legal opinion from Jonathan Reed was sent to all members and SELPA cautions using mental </p><p>health funds for behavior. </p></li><li><p>7 </p><p>Odyssey Learning Center will be raising their transportation rate from $35 to $50 in the 2015-2016 </p><p>school year. </p><p>SELPA met with Sierra School Upper regarding opening a Non-Public School (NPS) in Placer </p><p>County. There are currently 14 Placer County students attending Sierra School Upper in </p><p>Sacramento. Members were polled and it appears Placer County would come very close to the </p><p>minimum of 30 students needed to open a stand-alone school. The population they would serve is </p><p>mainly ASD and ED. Sierra School provides transportation and is able to issue diplomas since they </p><p>are accredited. The next step is to find a facility. </p><p>6.0 Adjournment </p><p> 6.1 The meeting was adjourned at 11:33am. The next SEAC meeting is scheduled for Friday, </p><p>May 15, 2015. </p></li><li><p>8 </p><p>PLACER COUNTY </p><p>SPECIAL EDUCATION LOCAL PLAN AREA </p><p>SPECIAL EDUCATION ADMINISTRATORS COMMITTEE </p><p>AGENDA ITEM NO. 4.1 </p><p>MEETING DATE: 5-15-15 </p><p>SUBJECT: Compliance Update. </p><p>AGENDA ITEM SUBMITTED FOR: SUBMITTED BY: </p><p> Public Hearing Barbara Morton </p><p> Reports/Presentations </p><p>X DISCUSSION PRESENTING TO COUNCIL: </p><p> Discussion Barbara Morton </p><p>BACKGROUND AND SUMMARY: CDE is conducting several reviews concurrently including </p><p>Verification Review (VR), Data Identified Non-Compliance (DINC) and alignment of CALPADS </p><p>and CASEMIS.
