The purpose of the Community Advisory Committee for Special Education (CAC) 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.
