CAC meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of each month (except July, November, and December). Meeting times are from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and are hosted by Support for Families of Children with Disabilities.  Visit the CAC meetings page for more details, including how to reserve interpretation.

Meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.  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.


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.
