What is a SEAC?
A SEAC is a group that provides input on special education issues to its local school district.
- Its purpose is to advise and to advocate, not to decide policy.
- Minnesota law requires each school district or cooperative to have a SEAC.
- Minnesota law does not say how the groups should be organized or what duties they should perform.
Why is SEAC important?
- Local SEAC advise school districts on the development of programs and services to meet the special educational needs of children and families.
- Parents can help districts be more effective by sharing families' unique perspectives.
- As a result, outcomes for children can improve.
