Community Advisory Committee for Special Education
CAC MONTHLY UPDATE
We hope you had a restful break with plenty of time spent with friends and family.
December was a month filled with inclusive activities as many in our community participated in SFUSD Inclusive Schools Week celebrations at our schools and in the community. Thanks to all those who volunteered, participated and contributed, it means a lot to our students and families.
This spring we have a number exciting events planned and look forward to a presentation from Dr Mary Bacon at our January meeting, the CCEIS Summit on January 28th and the return of the in person Support for Families Information Resource Conference on March 18th at John O'Connell High School. Read below for all the details.
UPCOMING CAC Event - Thursday, February 23rd
Please join us to discuss and help shape SFUSD’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). We will talk about family and community priorities and how families and community partners can help students and schools succeed.

PURPOSE OF THE CAC
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 of students with disabilities.
Joining the CAC gives community members an opportunity to have their opinions heard and make a difference in the way special education is conducted in our area. Find out more on the CAC membership page.
