Each school board in Ontario is mandated to establish a Special Education Advisory Committee (S.E.A.C.) that is made up of membership nominated by the local associations and approved by the Board. The Superintendent of Special Education Services also attends the S.E.A.C. meetings. The local associations have parental representatives who promote the interests and well-being of pupils with exceptional needs and abilities.
