The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) focuses on the needs of students with disabilities. The committee is composed of parents of children with special needs, professionals, and community members. It serves in an advisory capacity to Exceptional Students Services.
The committee acts as a bridge between parents, the school district and the community. SEAC provides an opportunity for parents to share their views and gain information pertaining to students who are on an IEP.
SEAC meets once a month and any community member is invited.

Responsibility of all members are to advise and not advocate for specific positions or agenda. Advise means to inform, counsel, recommend, suggest, or guide. To advocate means to plead your case or position, to favor an individual case or argument. The committee is to provide advice based on data and good judgment. (CSEAC)
