Special Education Advisory Council

The Minneapolis Public Schools Special Education Advisory Council, SEAC (pronounced "seek") is a partnership between the school district and parents/guardians of Minneapolis students with disabilities. The SEAC is mandated by the state to advise the District on policy and planning through the Executive Director of Special Education. 

The SEAC is comprised of a majority of parents/guardians, and key Special Ed Department staff. The SEAC often invites leaders from other district departments in order to be informed and to lend perspective to decision making.

Monthly Meetings

The SEAC meets the first Thursday of each month of the school year. Meetings are open to all parents, staff and interested community partners. Meetings will take place at the new Davis Center in room S1-435.  Currently there is no onsite child care, however child care stipends are available via mail after the meeting. 

Why should I come to a SEAC meeting?

  • To learn more about special education.
  • To have your voice heard
  • To have input on planning in the department and district
  • Meet other families of children with special needs

How do I become a voting member?
