 Please come and join us on Tuesday, October 23rd for a Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) meeting.  The meeting will take place at 11 am at the School Board Administration Building at 143 Poor Farm Road, Fincastle, VA  24090.  We will have an informational presentation consisting of an overview of the transition services provided through Department of Rehabilitation Services (DRS/DARS) by Ms. Bonita Pope, DRS/DARS Transition Counselor.  Our regular business meeting will take place prior to the presentation. 


The Botetourt County Special Education Advisory Committee functions to advise the school division of needs in the education of children with disabilities. In addition, the SEAC assists in the development of long-range plans, priorities and strategies for meeting the identified needs of children with disabilities.  The SEAC is comprised of parents of students with disabilities, representatives of local agencies, community members and school representatives. Your participation is important and greatly appreciated.


You may attend some or all of the SEAC meetings. Our Special Education Advisory Committee meetings are open for public access.  If you would like more information regarding your local SEAC, you may contact Julie A. Baker, Supervisor of Special Education, at 473-8263. 


Together…we accomplish more!
