Community Advisory Committees are vital components of effective Special Education programs in California. CACs have specific roles and responsibilities. Across California, CACs assist in advising the SELPA Governing Board, SELPA Administrator, and Special Education Administration about the Special Education Local Plan, annual priorities, parent education and other Special Education-related activities. Every Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) is required to establish a CAC. A SELPA is a consortium that is formed to ensure that the full continuum of Special Education services is available to all eligible students within its boundaries. It is comprised of an individual district, a group of districts, or districts and a county office(s) of education. CACs provide an important connection between the community and the SELPA.
