Earlier this year, Paradigm’s Policy & Research Division distributed a Policy Impact Survey
to more than 170 California Local Educational Agencies (LEAs), including a handful of
Local Educational Consortium (LEC) and Local Governmental Agency (LGA) program
coordinators. The results published in this brief are intended to promote a better
understanding of the role current policy issues play in day-to-day program operations and
will also influence the focus of research and publications for Paradigm’s Policy Division in
fiscal year 2012/13. Topics surveyed include: Free Care, behavioral health, transportation billing, mental health, health reform, and more.
