About the Community Advisory Committee (CAC)
The El Dorado Charter SELPA’s Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is a dynamic, collaborative partnership comprised of educators, parents/guardians, and community members. The CAC provides an opportunity for members to be involved and provide input to the Charter SELPA regarding the Special Education Local Plan, annual priorities, parent/guardian education, and other special education-related activities. The CAC holds three meetings annually to address topics of interest to families of children and young adults with disabilities.
CAC meetings are open to parents, family members, educators, agency representatives, and community members who are interested in supporting children with special needs.
Every Charter School is entitled to have one CAC representative. A CAC representative must be appointed and approved by their Charter School's governing board. The CAC committee should be composed of a majority of parents of children with exceptional needs.
Why Join the CAC?
- Assist in building relationships and communication between schools, parents/guardians and related agencies.
- Encourage community and parental/guardian involvement in the review of the Special Education Local Plan.
- Provide families an opportunity to share resources and support within their school and community.
