Special Education Citizens Advisory Committee (SECAC)

The Carroll County SECAC is a committee established by Carroll County Public Schools to seek meaningful input from parents, community partners, service providers, educators, and administrators on local issues about the achievement of students with disabilities.  This collaboration enables the director of special education to make positive changes in the delivery of special education services.  If you have concerns and desire to bring about positive change please consider becoming an active member in this constructive process. 


The 2019 Appreciation and Recognition Awards Ceremony is coming April 15, 2019!

Nominate a staff member, community group, or an individual who has gone to extraordinary efforts to contribute in a compassionate and caring way to the growth, happiness, and general wellbeing of a child with a disability.
