“The mission of Ontario-Montclair School District SELPA is to work in collaboration with our families, staff, community members, and partners in education for the betterment of all students. We embrace the uniqueness of our population and foster the development of programming to provide opportunities for students to reach their full potential in an inclusive educational environment. OMSD SELPA is committed to providing students with the accommodations, support, resources, and services to strive for academic excellence."
Welcome to the Ontario-Montclair School District Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) website. This website is designed to provide parents, teachers, community members and other stakeholders with information and resources to support the educational needs of students with disabilities. I encourage you to take a moment to browse and become more familiar with all that OMSD SELPA has to offer.
Ontario-Montclair School District is especially proud of the specialized programs that we offer, such as the Autism Program, Behavior Intervention Classes, Orthopedic Impairment classes, Intensive Reading Workshop, and the Annual Social Skills Camp. We work closely with San Bernardino County Schools, Inland Regional Center, Chaffey Joint Union High School District, and Early Start Programs to ensure that students receive the most appropriate programs, supports, and services available for students with disabilities under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 2004).In addition, OMSD works in collaboration with non-public schools and agencies and the nine other neighboring districts to provide a continuum of services and placement options.
I’ve worked in the educational field for the past 20 years in various capacities and pride myself on being a transformational leader. It is my pleasure and honor to work alongside the dedicated education specialists, related services providers, Special Education Leadership Team and committed district directors to build a community of learners. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to the Board of Trustees and Dr. Hammond for bestowing upon me the opportunity to lead the OMSD SELPA on this remarkable journey.
