Compliance Findings, Corrective Action Plans, and Outcomes Data Related to Students with Individualized Education Programs Receiving Mental Health Related Services
This report is required by Senate Bill (SB) 884, Chapter 835, Statutes of 2016. The report provides information on compliance findings and corrective action plans related to the provision of mental health services for pupils with individualized education programs (IEPs) gathered through the California Department of Education Special Education Division’s Comprehensive Review process. The report also provides data, as specified by SB 884, pertinent to students receiving mental health services through an IEP.
Specifically, the report provides an overview of the purpose of and method for conducting Comprehensive Reviews to monitor for the provision of special education and related services within local educational agencies. It defines what constitutes noncompliance with a student’s IEP pertaining to the provision of related services, and it contains mental health related services compliance findings.

Data in each area are provided first for all students with disabilities and then for students with disabilities who also received mental health related services as specified by their IEPs. The data cover the 2015–16 school year, the latest year for which complete data are available.
