Role of the CAC
The CAC serves as an advisory board to review and help develop the Local Plan for Special Education required under EC Sec 56190. The CAC recommends annual priorities to be addressed by the SELPA, encourages community involvement, assists in parent education and provides support to families with children in special education.
Participating in the CAC
All CAC meetings are open to the public. Parents and other caregivers are encouraged to attend these meetings where they can learn about what is happening in their school district, around the state and receive other important information about special education. Voting members are appointed and approved by the school board of each district. The majority of voting membership must be comprised of parents of children with disabilities enrolled in public or private schools within the SELPA. Everyone concerned with the education of children with special needs are welcome to attend.
The West San Gabriel Valley SELPA supports Students, Families and Member Districts by providing quality trainings, special events and the essential information necessary to encourage Students to reach their greatest potential.
In support of their commitment they will provide a well-trained staff dedicated to:
Working in partnership with schools, families and the community
Helping all students become successful members of society
Create a welcoming SELPA environment
