Local Special Education Advisory Committees (SEACs) have a long history in Virginia. Every school division is required to have a SEAC as detailed in Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia, effective January 25, 2010 (special education regulations).
The major purpose of SEAC is to provide an opportunity for parents and other school board appointees to have a voice in the way school divisions provide services to students with disabilities. SEAC is an extension of local school board since members are appointed by them, and SEAC provides reports and recommendations to their school board.
