What is SEAC?


SEAC is the Special Education Advisory Committee. Every school division is required to have a SEAC as detailed in Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia, effective January 25, 2010 (special education regulations). The major purpose of SEACs is to provide an opportunity for parents and other school board appointees to have a voice in the way school divisions provide services to students with disabilities. SEACs are extensions of local school boards since members are appointed by them, and SEACs can provide reports and recommendations to their school boards. SEAC meetings are open to the public and we value your comments/questions concerning special education in FCPS.   Please watch the principal’s newsletters for reminders and information on upcoming meetings.  .
