Special Education Advisory Committees (SEAC)

A SEAC is a committee of a school board or a school authority that provides important advice on special education.

  • A SEAC is comprised of trustees and representatives of local associations that further the interests and well-being of groups of exceptional children or adults.
  • A SEAC may make recommendations to the board on any matter affecting the establishment, development and delivery of special education programs and services for exceptional students in a board.
  • Each school board and school authority in Ontario must establish a SEAC. For more information, the requirements of SEACs are set out in Regulation 464/97.

Please consider representing the children, youth and young adults who have low vision or are blind in your community at your school board’s SEAC. Contact us at for more information.
