Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is a group of parents and educators whose primary role is to represent the needs and concerns of the parents, school staff, and community agencies relative to services for students with special needs.

The CAC helps community members to know their rights, influence legislation, learn about programs, advise SELPA, and more.

Be Involved in the CAC

CAC meetings offer information about options in special education instruction, special services available to your child, and pending legislation affecting education. Time is set aside to provide parents and community members an opportunity to ask questions of special education professionals and to share experiences with other parents.

Plan to attend the meetings and become a CAC committee member!
