Special Education Advisory Committee

Limestone Learning Foundation

The role of the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC)  is to make recommendations to the Board of Trustees on behalf of parents/guardians, associations and community partners. The recommendations help ensure that exceptional pupils served by the Board receive the special education programs and services that meet their needs. 

Making recommendations to the Board: SEAC, through the regular monthly meeting, reports to the Board. Each Board meeting agenda contains the monthly SEAC report. Through this process SEAC has a communication channel to the Board and is involved and/or informed about areas such as Board placement options, staff development and the delivery of Special Education programs and services.

Participation in the review of the Special Education Plan: The Special Education Plan is updated cooperatively by members of the Educational Services Leadership Team with input from SEAC. 

Participation in the development of the Board’s annual budget for Special Education: Consultation regarding special education budget matters has taken place through presentations to SEAC.

Membership: The current membership of SEAC includes a wide range of associations in the community. It is the role of the individual associations to nominate and propose their representatives to SEAC. A member and an alternate member represent most associations. There are two co-chairs of SEAC one who is currently a trustee and one who is an association representative elected by fellow SEAC association members. Members At Large selected by SEAC typically serve the community in a capacity which is related to student support.
