What is Burrillville Special Education Advisory Committee (BSEAC)?
Burrillville Special Education Advisory Committee is the Special Education Parent Advisory Council, also known as the Local Advisory Council (LAC). BSEAC is parents, educators, and the community of Burrillville working together to improve education for all of our children.
All BSEAC meetings are held from 6:00-7:00 PM at the Burrillville Middle School Media Center, adjacent to the School Department, 2300 Bronco Highway, Harrisville, RI.
Light refreshments will be served, and childcare is available with prior notice.
Why do we need a Local Advisory Council (LAC)?
According to the Rhode Island Regulations Governing Special Education, Section 300.900, every school district must maintain a LAC.
Membership: Each local or regional committee shall be composed of persons involved in or concerned with the education of students with disabilities.
Functions and Responsibilities of the LAC: the committee shall advise the school district on matters concerning the unmet needs of students with disabilities, comment on improvement plans including school support plans, local compliance with state and federal laws pertaining to the education of students with disabilities, comment on applications for federal and state funds and serve as advocates in partnership with parents for students with disabilities to ensure that they receive the entitlements provided to them under state and federal laws.
