Special Education Advisory Committee

We develop our special education programs based on a philosophy of inclusion. We work hard so that students with exceptional needs can fully participate in the activities of the school and be active member of their class.

We also recognize that there are many committed and skilled individuals in the community that can assist us with developing special education programs that meet the learning needs of students in an inclusive environment. That is why we value the opportunity to work with our Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) to help establish special education programs and services for exceptional students.

SEAC membership includes two school board trustees, board staff representatives and up to 12 members nominated by local associations of parents.

The members of SEAC have a strong interest in assisting parents who may have children with special needs or abilities.  SEAC members make presentations at school council meetings for parents and/or professional development days for teachers. They also make recommendations to the Board of Trustees regarding special education programs and services.
