Special Education Advisory Committee



What is SEAC?

Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is an advisory board consisting of approximately twenty stakeholders that include a balance of parents, educators, administrators, students and representatives from community agencies who have been selected to serve in this important role. The goal of the SEAC is to advise, assist and support the district in its efforts to improve outcomes for all students with disabilities in the district. SEAC is an advisory committee. The District will continue to host learning and support events at regular intervals throughout the year as we have done previously. These events will be open to any and all interested families and staff members as they have been in the past, and will be advertised through the School Messenger system as well as on this webpage.

2021-2022 Resource Fair - POSTPONED


All students, educators, caregivers, and families of students receiving special education services are invited to attend our annual resource fair. The resource fair is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others and learn about available resources in our community to assist individuals with disabilities from birth to adulthood. Each year we invite a diverse mix of exhibitors, including parent support groups, respite providers, recreational and summer programs, vocational programs, and much more to share what they have to offer our special needs community. Please reach out to Holly Dolfi if you have any questions about this event.
