Special Education Advisory Committee

Michigan’s Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is the advisory panel to the State Board of Education and the Michigan Department of Education mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

SEAC gathers and shares information about special education with the public. In addition, SEAC advises the State Board of Education and works with the Office of Special Education. While SEAC serves as an advisory committee that provides guidance, it does not set special education policy for Michigan. The 33 members of SEAC represent a diverse group of stakeholders including administrators, providers, advocates, and consumers concerned with the education of all children, including students with disabilities.
