2020-21 Community Advisory Committee

CAC Mission

The CAC's ultimate goal is to ensure that students succeed in maximizing their potential, receive the best possible education, and have equal access to all services. The CAC collaborates with the local SELPA to ensure that the educational requirements of special education students are met. The CAC serves as a liaison between SELPA, the Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE), local districts, families, community members, students, and teachers, so that all voices are heard. The organization also provides consumer education, information, and referral to resources. The Sonoma County Community Advisory Committee (CAC) advises the local Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) as specified by the State Education Code Part 30, Sections 56001, 56190-56194, 56195.7, 56195.9, 56200, 56205, 56240, 56728.7, and 56780.

More information about the CAC and its operations can be found in the CAC Bylaws (see Related Documents).
