Citizen's Advisory Council

WICOMICO COUNTY SPECIAL EDUCATION CITIZEN’S ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

A Special Education Citizen’s Advisory Committee (SECAC) is a committee established by the local school system to seek meaningful input from parents, community partners, service providers, educators and administrators on local issues relative to the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) and the achievement of students with disabilities.  To work most effectively, a SECAC operates as a partnership between parents and families, community leaders and organizations, educators and administrators at the local level.  A local SECAC enables a local director of special education to collaborate with others on local issues and it has the potential to facilitate positive changes in the delivery of special education services and the achievement of students with disabilities.  [COMAR 13A.05.02.13I]
