Mission and Vision


The SEDAC provides the district and Board of Trustees with recommendations on issues affecting students receiving special education services and their families. The SEDAC also provides a forum for special education stakeholders to exchange information and ideas, and gain support and resources.


The vision of the SEDAC is to engage a broad group of special education stakeholders in shaping the policies, systems, and supports offered to students receiving special education services so that these students are fully able to access the educational curriculum.


The bylaws of the SEDAC are currently in draft form and are expected to be finalized in May, 2020. Please use this form for SEDAC Bylaws Comments.
