SEAC: Special Education Advisory Committee

What is SEAC?

Each school division in Virginia is required to have a Special Education Advisory Committee according to the "Regulations Governing Special Education programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia."  Special Education Advisory Committees are also required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). 


Our mission is to advise the Superintendent and School Board of any needs regarding the education of children with special needs and disabilities; and,

to collaboratively serve as a resource of support and information for all individuals involved in educating children with special needs and disabilities. 

 In doing so, we aim to better serve all children within Warren County, Virginia
