Community Advisory Committee - CAC

What is the CAC? 

What is the CAC? 

The CAC is a group of parents, educators, service providers, and others who advocate for the needs of students with disabilities of all kinds and their families.
 
The CAC is mandated by the California Education Code (Sections 56190-56194), which states that each Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) must form a CAC.

Our Local Plan Area includes the three school districts in Modoc County: Modoc Joint Unified, Surprise Valley Joint Unified, and Tulelake Basin Joint Unified.

What are the activities of the CAC? 
 
Review the Local Plan for Special Education 
 
Suggest annual priorities
 
Assist in parent education
 
Encourage community involvement
 
Support activities on behalf of individuals with exceptional needs 

To do this, the CAC

            Holds regular business meetings

            Plans special workshops

            Recruits special speakers

            Participates in meetings with school staff and with other CACs
