Our Mission

We are a group of non-profit agencies and community organizations that represent children with special needs 

in Wake County. 


Our Work

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.


Join 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 SEAC Parents Only Group. (This is a closed group and posts are only visible to other members.)
