Welcome TO THE CAC FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION

WHAT IS THE CAC?

The purpose of the CAC/ Community Advisory Committee for Special Education is to advocate for effective Special Education programs and services, and advise the SFUSD Board of Education on priorities in the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). The State Education Code mandates that each SELPA must have a CAC and that a majority of CAC members be parents.

NEWS + UPCOMING EVENTS

BECOME A FOSTER PARENT!

More than half of San Francisco foster youth are placed outside of San Francisco because there are not enough safe, loving foster homes for them within our City. This separates foster children from their relatives, friends, anopd school.


When you become a resource foster parent in San Francisco, you allow a child to maintain those connections while building positive new ones. By providing a safe and stable home, you’ll see the child placed in your care learn, trust, and grow in extraordinary ways. The City needs additional foster homes so these children and youth can stay in our community and in our schools.


If you would like to help foster, adopt, or even mentor a foster child, please visit https://foster-sf.org/ for more information.
