 Who May Attend SEAC Meetings?

All meetings are open to the public. SEAC welcomes anyone interested in special education. There is a designated time for public comment during the meeting. This is an opportunity to share successful educational experiences and express general concerns regarding educational issues for students with disabilities.


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.
