Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC)
The Santa Barbara Unified School District encourages parents of students with unique needs to partner with the district to enhance district-wide special education programs. In 2009, the district created the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC).
The purpose of SEAC is to share information between the district’s special education department and parent representatives from each school site; to create a forum for parent representatives in order to provide input regarding special education policies and procedures; to provide an opportunity for parent representatives from each school site to collaborate; and to establish communication between parents, school sites, and district administration.
The principals recommend parents from each site to participate on SEAC. In addition to parent representatives, district special education leadership, principals, and board members participate in the meetings. Parents, teachers, and support staff are welcome to attend. If you would like to attend a meeting, please contact the special education department for information.
