Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

What is the CAC?

The state of California is divided into "areas" for the purpose of administering special education services for Students with disabilities. These areas are called Special Education Local Planning Areas or SELPAs. Usually, smaller school districts are grouped together to form one SELPA. Larger school districts, such as San Bernardino City Unified School District, form a single SELPA. Each SELPA must submit a Local Plan to the state every few years describing how services will be delivered to students receiving special education services in their planning area in accordance with the law. State law requires that every SELPA have a Community Advisory Committee (CAC). San Bernardino City schools Community Advisory Committee members are mostly parents of students receiving special education services. Others members may include students with disabilities, adults with disabilities, teachers, school district personnel, community agency representatives and other individuals concerned with the needs of individuals with disabilities.

What is the Purpose of the CAC?

The CAC is a working committee that participates in the development, amendment and review of the local plan assists in parent education, assists in recruitment of parents and other volunteers who may contribute to the implementation of the plan, supports activities on behalf of individuals with special needs, and assists in parent awareness of the importance of regular school attendance. All meeting and presentations are open to the public and attendance is encouraged.
