El Dorado County's Community Advisory Committee (CAC) consists of parents, teachers, and representatives of community agencies serving students with special needs from birth through age 22. Both CAC members and the general public are encouraged to attend CAC meetings. CAC members are appointed by the governing board of each participating district. The CAC by-laws further describe the role and responsibilities of the committee and specific implementation strategies. In addition to advising the SELPA in the development and review of the local plan, CAC supports a variety of activities on behalf of individuals with exceptional needs and their parents. If a non-CAC member is in attendance, that individual will be asked to provide input during the public comment section of the agenda. If you have an interest in becoming a board-approved CAC member, please contact your local district Professional Learning Community (PLC) representative to inquire.
