From the VDOE webpage:

Local special education advisory committees (SEACs) have a long history in Virginia.  Every school division is required to have a SEAC as detailed in Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia, effective January 25, 2010 (special education regulations).

The major purpose of SEACs is to provide an opportunity for parents and other school board appointees to have a voice in the way school divisions provide services to students with disabilities.  SEACs are extensions of local school boards since members are appointed by them, and SEACs provide reports and recommendations to their school boards.

The Caroline County Special Education Advisory Committee works with the school board, administrators, parents and teachers who are responsible for students receiving special education services.
  To advise the local school system of the needs in the education of children with disabilities
  To assist the local school system in the development of long-range plans which will provide needed services for children with disabilities
  To submit periodic reports and recommendations regarding the education of children with disabilities to the local school board.
 To review annually the school system’s updated special education plan and application for federal funding.
 To hold a minimum of six regular meetings, which is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
