Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC)

SEAC helps our six member districts and the TRIO Wolf Creek charter school to meet the needs of students with disabilities. SEAC achieves this by improving communication and supporting parent/guardian involvement in special education decision making.

SEAC districts


Parent/Guardian SEAC Meetings

SEAC meetings are:

  • Two hours long
  • Scheduled in the evenings (childcare is provided)
  • At least three times per year — Fall 🍁, Winter ☃️, and Spring 🌱

Parents/guardians who represent children with a variety of disabilities meet and are joined by our special education administrators (including our Director of Special Education).

Teacher Meetings

A representative group of special education teachers from across our member districts meets with SCRED administrators (including our Director of Special Education) as a Special Education Advisory group. These meetings occur more frequently than our parent/guardian SEAC meetings.
