The Simcoe County District School Board is seeking representatives of local agencies, associations, and organizations who are interested in serving on the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC).

The main role and activities of the committee are to: make recommendations to the school board in respect of any matter affecting the establishment, development, and delivery of special education programs and services for the exceptional pupils who attend schools within the school board district.

Members of the committee will participate in the board’s annual review of its special education plan, participate in the board’s annual budget process as it relates to special education, and review the financial statements of the board as they related to special education.

Interested representatives must meet certain qualifications to be considered.

They must be a Canadian citizen, be at least 18 years old, a resident within the area of jurisdiction of the school board, be a public school elector, and must not be employed by the Simcoe County District School Board.

As the SEAC participates in the board’s annual review of its Special Education Plan and annual budget process, members may be asked to attend a few additional meetings throughout the school year. Committee members may also decide to take part in sub-committees of the SEAC that form throughout the school year; additional meeting time/commitment is required for these committees.
