On March 5, 2010 Mary Hudler, CDE Sped Director
confirmed that local educational agencies are ultimately responsible. If
a state agency, other than the District, such as Mental Health fails to
provide a service, the District is responsible and the District can
obtain reimbursement against the "other than the District" …agency.
See: http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/se/lr/om03052010.asp

This impacts how IEP services are delivered, who is responsible when there is a failure and who should be named as a party in a due process request.
