SELPA: Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

 

Community Advisory Committee for Special Education (CAC)
 
What:  California Education Code (Part 30, Chapter 7, Article 7, 56190) requires each Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) to establish a Community Advisory Committee for Special Education (CAC). The Community Advisory Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the SRVUSD Special Education Department and Board of Education on the implementation of the Local Plan. The Local Plan describes how SRVUSD provides services to students with exceptional needs.
 
Who:  Membership on the CAC includes a majority of interested parents of regular and special education students, representatives of public and private agencies, both regular and special education teachers, and other community members interested in the delivery of services to special education students. Because the CAC supports family involvement, parents may apply as a family and share the CAC membership responsibility.  We would like to have 15 parent members on the committee. The CAC parent members work together along with administrators, staff, teachers and other parents as members of many District groups that support all of our students. CAC parent input is valuable to the district in its efforts to communicate with parents. We strive to welcome parent volunteers, community members and educators who will work toward creating success for students, providing supportive information for teachers, and maintaining a well-informed parent community to support students’ educational experiences in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. Interested potential members are encouraged to complete the application process.  CAC members are appointed by the Board of Education and commit to serving for a designated two year term. Any parent of a student in the district, staff or community member may attend CAC meetings.
 
How:  The CAC performs the following activities:
 
  • Advises the district administration and Board of Education regarding special education policy issues as related to implementation of the SELPA Local plan;
  • Makes recommendations on annual priorities to be addressed under the plan;
  • Assists in parent education and disability awareness activities;
  • Acts in support of individuals with exceptional needs.
 
Every CAC meeting will focus on a specific topic and include time for “Public Comment” where anyone can speak to a given topic or let the CAC know of a general concern. If the concern raised is case specific, the CAC will refer the question to a Parent Support Network volunteer or appropriate district staff.
 

When:  Please refer to calendar.
