About Us » Welcome


The West Orange County Consortium for Special Education (WOCCSE) is a SELPA (Special Education Local Plan Area) that encompasses five school districts in Orange County, California serving approximately 5,300 special education students.  The member districts are:

  • Fountain Valley School District
  • Huntington Beach City School District
  • Huntington Beach Union High School District
  • Ocean View School District
  • Westminster School District

The governing body of WOCCSE is the Superintendents’ Council that is composed of the superintendents from each of the five member districts.

Members of the Superintendents’ Council are responsible to the governing boards of the local education agencies in the SELPA.  Policies and procedures adopted by the Council provide direction for all aspects of the SELPA, including uniform practices to be used by the member districts in the provision of special education programs and services outlined in the Local Plan.  The Council has fiscal responsibilities for reviewing and approving the WOCCSE budget and the allocation of special education funds to the member districts.  Meetings are held four times a year.
