Special Education Advisory Council

1.  Parental input into the decision-making process of the Rum River Special Education Cooperative.
2.  To provide a communication link with the member districts' parents and special education instructors.
3.  To advocate for high quality regular and special education programs.

Why are parent advisories important?
PACs are parent-led organizations that advise school districts on the development of programs and services to meet the special educational needs of children and families.  By sharing their unique perspective of what it is like to use these services, parents can help the district to be more effective.  As a results, outcomes for children with disabilities should improve.

Who can serve?
The Rum River Special Education Cooperative-SEAC has 12 members (one parent and one special education staff from each of the Cooperative's six districts). 

What do members do?
1. Members consider issues, focus on system change rather than individual children, and then recommend, suggest, guide and advise.  
2. Members meet 3 times per school year.
3. The Council advises the Director Special Education regarding current issues, program development, parental concerns and involvement, and cooperative-wide policies and procedures.
