Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC)

SPECIAL EDUCATION ADVISORY COMMITTE (SEAC) is a district panel composed of parents and special education staff.  It's focus is to provide a bridge between parents, the school district and the community.  SEAC provides an opportunity for parents to share their views and gain information pertaining to students who are on an IEP. 

Periodically throughout the school year, SEAC sponsors informational sharing presentations that are open to the public, including parents and teachers.  These prensentations are typically focused on effective methods and resources available for students with special needs.  The  presentations are held in the Weld RE-4 School District Office located at 1020 Main Street in Windsor, CO.  If you would like to become a member of the committee, please contact Jennifer Sedaghat at jennifer.sedaghat@weldre4.org .
