SEAC (Special Education Advisory Committee)

A Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is a committee of a school board or a school authority that provides important advice on special education.

A SEAC is comprised of trustees and representatives of local associations that further the interests and well-being of groups of exceptional children or adults.

A SEAC may make recommendations to the board on any matter affecting the establishment, development and delivery of special education programs and services for exceptional students in a board.

Each school board and school authority in Ontario must establish a SEAC. For more information, the requirements of SEACs are set out in Ontario Regulation 464/97.
