Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for Special Education

Advocates for Special Education Programs

The purpose of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) for Special Education is to champion effective special education programs and services and advise the Board of Education on priorities in the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA).

The State Education Code mandates that each SELPA have a CAC and that a majority of CAC members are parents.  

Meetings

In San Francisco, CAC meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of each month (except July, November, and December). Starting in April 2011, the meetings are from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. 

These meetings are open to the public; everyone is welcome to attend. Joining the CAC gives you an opportunity to have your opinions heard and make a difference in the way special education is conducted in our area. Please join us!
