New Service Hubs

DDS and the California Department of Education (CDE) are making key changes to the DSPT project due to the current educational funding structure. The DSPT statute and regulations are not changing; DDS and CDE are consolidating the number of entities across the state that will be managing the DSPT and testing services. DSPT and testing service management will shift from the local ROC/Ps to 4 Service Hubs. These 4 Service Hubs will incorporate the regional center catchment service areas for coordination of DSPT and testing services. The new Service Hubs will be administered by Butte, Fresno, Santa Barbara, and Riverside County Offices of Education.

The new Service Hubs and the regional center catchment areas they will be providing the training for are as follows:

Butte County Office of Education

  • Far Northern
  • Redwood Coast
  • North Bay
  • Alta CA

Fresno County Office of Education

  • East Bay
  • Valley Mountain
  • Central Valley
  • Kern

Santa Barbara County Office of Education
