    Dear Parents:


    You are invited to attend the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) Kick-Off Meeting on Tuesday, September 21st at 7:00 pm at the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) Administration Building located at 21000 Education Court, Ashburn, VA 20148. 


    The purpose of the SEAC is to identify unmet needs for the 5,900 LCPS students with disabilities and to provide input on how best to address these needs.  The SEAC collaborates with teaching staff, parents, administrators and the Loudoun County School Board.  The SEAC also provides input to the development of the school district’s annual plan in order to comply with Special Education regulations to receive federal funds.  Additionally, professionals provide valuable presentations on topics important to special education caregivers, i.e. IEP’s, ESY and Testing Options.


    LCPS is working diligently to increase students’ success on state testing and to meet the requirements of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.  The SEAC supports teachers and paraprofessionals and will continue to promote high standards of professionalism, advocate for continued staff development opportunities and support the recruitment and retention of highly qualified staff.


    We welcome input and collaboration from stakeholders like you who are instrumental in the provision of services to students with special needs. We hope to see you at our SEAC Kick-Off meeting on September 21st. Your participation will make a difference in the services being provided to students with special needs.  


    SEAC meets monthly during the school year on the third Tuesday of each month from 7pm to 9pm (September – June, excluding December).  All meetings are open to the public:  parents, educators, and the community.  Our bi-annual Town Hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 6, 2011.


    Please join us on September 21st as we kick off the 2010/2011 school year.
