The Members of the Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) of the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) have put together this information handbook to assist the families and special needs students within the Board. SEAC is a committee of the Board that includes, trustees, Senior Special Education Staff and representatives of the Community Associations who represent students with Special Needs.

In this booklet, SEAC and its role is identified. Two procedures, which have been designed to help special needs students receive an appropriate education are also examined. These are known as the Identification, Placement and Review Committee Procedure (IPRC) and the Individual Education Plan (IEP).
