What is the CAC?
The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is made up of family members, school staff and agency representatives. The CAC facilitates the communication and exchange of information between schools and families, advises the administration of the SELPA (Special Education Local Plan Area) regarding their concerns and collaborates to solve them. CAC promotes activities that benefit individuals with special needs, sponsors training for parents of children with special needs and assists with the formation of parent sponsors. The meetings are held quarterly, the first Monday of the month from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. The meetings are open to the public and take place in the SELPA Office (Santa Paula Room), 5100 Adolfo Road, Camarillo, CA 93012. Free childcare, sign language interpretation, Spanish interpretation and other accommodations are available if booked 10 days in advance. Please request accommodation(s) necessary for you to participate by calling the SELPA office at (805) 437-1560. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the office.
