Resource Parent Council


Maintained by the SELPA Office, this website is designed to meet the needs of families who are new to the special education process, are in need of a parent liaison with their school district, or who are seeking opportunities for support from other families facing similar challenges. We invite you to check our calendar for community events on a regular basis, follow our links to your district's SEDAC (Special Education District Advisory Council) and community agencies, and to find answers to your questions in the RPC Handbook section. If you can't find what you are looking for, please contact the SELPA Coordinator at (650) 802-5473.
