CAC is one of my dearest passions in life. As the secretary for CAC, I'm super excited about all of the initiatives that we're rolling out this year! We are reaching out to build partnerships, enhance communication, and address issues that impact children who receive special education. I'm delighted to work with such a committed group of colleagues in CAC to make a difference in children's and families' lives.

Our calendar is packed full with great training topics for parents, students, educators and the community... from IEPs, to Bullying, to Executive Functioning, Self-Advocacy to Estate Planning, just to name a few. Don't miss them! A complete list of topics and dates is on our website at www.scusdcac.org.

All meetings and trainings are open to the public.
