Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

The CAC is a committee of parents with special needs children, educators, community members, and public/private agency representatives who are interested in providing quality education for children with special education needs. The CAC works with the Sonoma County Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) to help address the needs of the special education community. It serves in an advisory capacity regarding community opinions, concerns, and suggestions pertaining to the education and related services for students with disabilities.

The CAC holds regular meetings throughout the school year. For more information, see the Sonoma County SELPA website or call (707) 524-2752.


Predator Awareness Task Force (PATF)

In 2006, SCOE’s Special Education department and the North Bay Regional Center (NBRC) joined together to form the Predator Awareness Task Force in an effort to reduce the risk of victimization of students with developmental disabilities. The Task Force has developed a number of free resources to help children and young adults with special needs stay safe. Resources for parents and teachers who can help with this effort are also available. Learn more and access resources.
