Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC)

In Ontario, boards are required to establish a Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC).  These committees include two trustees and representatives from local parent associations

These representatives serve as advocates for children and parents and the associations have useful parent resources.

SEAC meets ten (10) times during the school year on the third Wednesday of the month at the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) Administration Office, 1270 Pembroke Street West, Pembroke, ON K8A 4G4. Meetings are from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. They are open to the public.
