Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC)

The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is an advisory committee mandated by the Ministry of Education to advise the Board on any issues related to students with diverse or exceptional learning needs including special education needs. The members of the committee include representatives of local associations, members of the school board, Aboriginal representatives, and may include additional members who do not belong to any of these groups.

For more information about SEAC roles and responsibilities, you may wish to visit the Ontario Ministry of Education's SEAC Learning. SEAC has a long history of active participation in supporting students with special education needs. SEAC supports the team approach to provide a Catholic Education which develops spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical capabilities of each individual to live fully today and to meet the challenges of the future, thus enriching society. In keeping with legislation set out in Regulation 464/97, 11, 12(1), (2) of the Education Act, the roles and responsibilities of the SEAC include:
  1. To ensure that the rights of students with special needs within the Board are being met;
  2. To provide specific information, assistance and advice to parents and guardians whose children may require additional support;
  3. To make recommendations to the Board concerning the establishment and development of special education programs and services;
