CAC – A Parent Support Network

The Special Education Community Advisory Council (CAC) advises and provides input to the SELPA and districts regarding programs and services for children with special needs. The committee consists of parents of students with special needs enrolled in public or private schools in western Nevada County. Each member is appointed by and represents their respective school district. As part of its role in facilitating communication between schools and parents of children with special needs, the CAC makes recommendations and suggestions to other SELPA committees, and discusses problems facing our special education programs. Another important role is supporting fellow parents of children with special needs and assisting in parent education.
