Purpose

The purpose of the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is to improve and promote communication between schools, parents, and public agencies to increase community awareness, facilitate parent education and support, and coordinate activities on behalf of children with exceptional needs.

 Members provide and assist in the development of parent information materials and awareness activities in our school district.  Membership is composed of school district board-appointed parents, educators, and district staff.  Topic presentations and/or meetings are held five times a year.  Meetings are open to the public.
