What is the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC)?
The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) for Richmond Public Schools is a partnership between the RPS school district, parents/guardians of students with disabilities, and vital community stakeholders. The SEAC is mandated, by the state, to advise the district on local issues, present or past policies, and planning.
