What SEAC Does:

* Advise LCPS of the needs of students with disabilities;

* Assist LCPS in the development of long-range plans, which will provide needed services for children with disabilities;

* Submit reports and recommendations regarding the education of students with disabilities to the School Board; and

* Review annually the LCPS updated special education plan and application for federal funding.
