Special Education Advisory Council

Supporting and Advocating for Students and Services

The Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) is a partnership between the school dstrict and parents/guardians of Roseville area students with disabilities.  The SEAC is mandated  by the state to advise the district on policy and planning through the director of special education.

The SEAC is comprised of a majority of parents/guardians and key Special Education Department staff.  The council often invites leaders from other district departments in order to be informed and to lend perspective to decision making.

The Council

  • Provides a forum for stakeholders to conduct scheduled meetings to collaboratively identify and encourage the use of best practices in special education.
  • Serves as an information source to all stakeholders regarding the district's special education programs and policies.
  • Interacts with district and community organizations to encourage meaningful opportunities for participation of students with special needs.

Meetings

During the school year, the Special Education Advisory Council meets 5-6 times from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the District Center.

The Special Education Advisory Council aims for parent representation from each district school. If you would like more information about the SEAC, or have questions about special education that you would like to discuss with a parent, please contact one of the representatives listed below.
