Welcome to the Special Needs Advisory Committee(SNAC)

Lester B. Pearson School Board


What is SNAC's Purpose?

According to the Education Act , Section 185: "Every school board shall establish an advisory committee on services for handicapped students and students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities".

http://legisquebec.gouv.qc.ca/en/ShowDoc/cs/I-13.3

The role of this committee is to:

  • Advise the school board on a policy for the organization of educational services for students with special needs

  • Advise on the allocation of financial resources for the provision of services intended for these students

While SNAC does not deal with individual issues, parents/guardians of children with special needs are welcome to attend the monthly meetings. We have a public question period at each meeting.
