Special Education Advisory Council

Members at SEAC meeting
  •  

    The purpose of the Saint Paul Public Schools’ Special Education Advisory Council is to collaborate with the District’s Office of Specialized Services to:

    • Address the unique needs of diverse learners so they can meet their maximum potential.
    • Promote respect and inclusion for all students and families.
    • Build strong relationships between families, schools, community partners, and district decision makers to influence decisions and policy making.
    • Empower and support parents to effectively advocate for children.
     
    We do this by: 
    • Informing and educating parents, school staff, students and community members through workshops, websites, and printed materials.
    • Providing opportunities for parents and caregivers to connect with the schools, community resources and each other.
    • Promoting collaboration as a means to improve the education process for all learners.
    • Influencing change, policy and procedures through researching needs and advocating for solutions.
