The Special Education Department needs your voice in shaping its future.  

Welcome to 2015!!!  Now’s the time to be part of a wonderful committee dedicated to improving educational opportunities for students with disabilities. 

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 provide reports and recommendations to their school boards.  We would like parent representatives from each school.
