The CAC is also seeking applicants to fill vacant seats on its executive board. The volunteer committee is a parent-run group established by the state to give parents a voice in Special Education implementation. The Advisory Committee is a collaborative partnership between parents of children with disabilities and PUSD staff that promotes positive experiences that result in educational and social advancement for students.
