Community Advisory Committee
The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) acts in an advisory capacity to the Solano Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). It involves the community in actively participating in the development, amendment and review of the Solano County SELPA's Local Plan for Special Education. The CAC is designed to include parent representatives from within the county, as well as local educators and interested community members.
Meetings take place every month at the SELPA Office in the Pena Adobe Room located at 5100 Business Drive, Fairfield, CA 94534. Please click here for the 2014-2015 schedule.
