HOW CAN YOU BE INVOLVED IN THE CAC?
Involvement in the special education program of a child is the responsibility of each parent. Being informed about options, programs, and rights in special education assists you in making decisions that assure your child's successful education. CAC meetings offer information about options in special education instruction. special services available to your child, and pending legislation affecting education. Time is set aside to provide parents and community members an opportunity to ask questions of special education professionals and to share experiences with other parents. Plan to attend the meetings and become a CAC committee member.
WHAT DOES THE CAC DO FOR YOU?
The Community Advisory (appointed annually by the Board of Education) is composed of parents of students with a wide range of disabilities, general education parents. students and adults with disabilities, teachers, district personnel, and community representatives. A majority of the membership must be parents of children enrolled in LAUSD and a majority of these parents must have children in special education.
