IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CONFIDENTIAL STUDENT DATA

A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all school districts across the state, including San Joaquin County SELPA.

 

In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against the CDE alleging widespread, systemic non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate, and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.

 

San Joaquin County SELPA was not involved in the lawsuit and is not the subject of any of the suit's allegations. Our SELPA and districts will not be giving out student information.   

 

Nonetheless, CDE as a part of this lawsuit has been ordered by the court to release all the data it has collected on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008.

 

For more information regarding the release of this data and how you can file an objection with the court to consider not releasing your data, visit: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase. You may also contact the California Department of Education at 916-319-0800.

La demanda legal en contra del Departamento de Educación de California (CDE por sus siglas en inglés) está impactando a todos los distritos escolares en el estado, incluyendo a la Oficina de "SELPA."

 

En abril del 2012, dos organizaciones, la Asociación de Padres Afectados de Morgan Hill y la Asociación de Padres Afectados, entablaron una demanda legal en contra del CDE acusándolo de incumplimiento sistémico generalizado por parte de agencias locales de educación en cuanto a las leyes de educación especial. La demanda alega que el CDE no cumple con monitorear, investigar y corregir el dicho incumplimiento de acuerdo a lo estipulado por la ley. La CDE niega dichas acusaciones y está defendiendo el litigio activamente.

 

Nuestra Oficina de "San Joaquín County SELPA" no está envuelta en la demanda y no es el sujeto de ninguna de las acusaciones de la misma.  Nuestra oficina de “SELPA” y distritos no divulgará información estudiantil.

 

Sin embargo, como parte de esta demanda, la corte ha ordenado a la CDE de divulgar todos los datos que ha recopilado en cuanto a estudiantes generales y de educación especial desde enero 1 del 2008.

 

Para obtener más información acerca de la divulgación de estos datos y como usted puede presentar una objeción con la corte para que esta considere no divulgar sus datos, visite: http://www.cde.ca.gov/morganhillcase. También puede contactar al Departamento de Educación de California al 916-319-0800.
