Any public agency, other than an education agency, that places your child with a disability (or one who is suspected of having a disability) in a facility out of state without the involvement of the school district, special education local plan area (SELPA) or county office of education in which the parent or guardian resides, must assume all financial responsibility for your child’s residential placement, special education program, and related services costs in the other state — unless a state or local agency in the other state assumes responsibility. [Cal. Gov. Code Sec. 7579(d).]
