Parents are encouraged to be an active member of their child's educational community. The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) acts in an advisory capacity to the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). Shasta CAC supports individuals with exceptional needs and their families who live in Shasta County. This committee provides an opportunity for parents, special education teachers, general education teachers, other school personnel, representatives of related public/private agencies, school administrators and other community members to provide important input as it relates to our special education programs.
Shasta CAC meetings are open to the public. All interested parents, teacher, students, community members, and anyone who has an interest in special education are encouraged to attend.
The Shasta CAC has responsibilities under California Education Code 56194 that include, but are not limited to:
- assisting in parent education supporting activities on behalf of individuals with exceptional needs
- recommending annual priorities or focus for the SELPA
- providing input to the Shasta SELPA Local Plan revisions Members include parents of students with disabilities and parents of other students, teachers and administrators of both special education and regular education, and representatives from other interested agencies. At least one-half of the Shasta SELPA CAC is composed of parents.
The Shasta CAC has a seven-member Governing Board. There is also a one-year general membership for any person attending a meeting. The Shasta CAC conducts at least four business meetings held during the school year. The meetings are open to all and are conducted in a facility that meets the American Disability Act standards. The Shasta CAC sponsors events and activities designed to support awareness of parent rights, services available within the community, and general disability awareness.
