- The development, amendment, and review of the local plan.
- Recommending annual priorities to be addressed by the local plan.
- Assisting in parent education and recruitment.
- Encouraging community involvement in the development and review of the local plan.
- Supporting activities on behalf of individuals with exceptional needs.
- Assisting in parent awareness of the importance of regular school attendance.
The CAC is composed of parents, students, EGUSD special education program staff, regular and special education teachers, other EGUSD school personnel, public and private agency representatives and concerned community members.
The purpose of the CAC is to advise and work collaboratively with the EGUSD Board of Education on special education policies, procedures, programs, priorities and parent education in the Special Education Local Plan Area.
