 What is the SEAC and why does BCPS have a local SEAC?

SEAC stands for Special Education Advisory Committee.  Each school division in Virginia is required to have a local Special Education Advisory Committee.  The SEAC is comprised of parents of students with disabilities, representatives of local agencies, community members and school representatives.


What is the purpose of the SEAC?  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 sponsors informational presentations on a variety of topics that may be of interest to parents of students from pre-school to adulthood. 


If I attend a meeting, will I have to serve on the committee?  No.  All meetings are open for public access, so anyone can attend. Just because you attend an informational presentation does not mean you will be asked to serve on the actual advisory committee. 


How can I learn more about presentations offered by the SEAC?  Informational flyers are sent home four times a year with students.  In addition, announcements and notices are posted on the division website, school websites, in school newsletters and in the Fincastle Herald.  If you would like more information regarding your local SEAC, you may also contact Julie A. Baker, Supervisor of Special Education, at 473-8263. 


Together…we accomplish more!
