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.
