Special Education Advisory Council

The Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) is a group that provides input on special education issues to its local school district, and it may be established for individual districts or in cooperation with other districts who are members of the same special education cooperative.  The purpose of the SEAC is to advise and advocate, not to determine policy, and at least half of the designated council members must be parents of students with a disability.  When a nonpublic school is located in the district, the council must include at least one member who is a parent of a nonpublic school student with a disability, or an employee of a nonpublic school if no parent of a nonpublic school student with a disability is available to serve.  Each local council must meet no less than once each year. 

While Minnesota law requires each school district in the state to have a SEAC, it does not specify how the groups should be organized or what duties they should perform. As a result, each SEAC may have a unique mission and structure.  For more information on the ISD200 mission and structure, please refer to the Hastings Public Schools’ SEAC Manual

For more information about SEAC or if you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Tonia Humble at 651-480-7008 or thumble@isd200.org
