What is SEAC?

Michigan’s Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandated state advisory panel to the State Board of Education and the Michigan Department of Education.

The mission of the SEAC is to support opportunities for all students in Michigan and especially those with disabilities by gathering, sharing, and disseminating information with the public; advising the State Board of Education; and working with the Office of Special Education.

Be Heard

The SEAC is most effective when there is public participation. Each SEAC meeting includes government mandated time for public comment.
