About Us


Our Mission…

We are a group of non-profit agencies and community organizations that represent children with special needs in Wake County. The SEAC serves as a conduit between the families of students receiving special education services in Wake County Public Schools (WCPSS) and school administrators to

  • promote communication
  • create opportunities for families to better understand the school system and special education policies, and
  • create a positive working relationship so that all students can become valued, respected and contributing members of their school and community.

We meet once a month, typically on the third Tuesday of the month at WCPSS’ Crossroads II. Meetings are open to the public, although there is no open commentary session. Visitors are welcome and can write to us at specialeducationadvcouncil@gmail.com for meeting details.

Interested in joining in the conversation? Find us on Facebook by searching for the group “Special Education Advisory Council – Wake County“. If you are a parent or caregiver of a student currently receiving special education services in WCPSS and you would like to join our exclusive group for those who share similar experiences, search Facebook for “Wake County Special Ed Advisory Council Parents Only Group“. This is a closed group and posts are only visible to other members.
