Who is CAC?

      CAC stands for the Community Advisory Committee for Special Education, a volunteer group composed predominately of parents of children with special needs who attend school within the Fresno Unified School District.  CAC is a group of parents, school personnel, and other community members, who work together to ensure that children with special needs are receiving the best education available.  Fresno Unified is required by law to have a CAC.

What does CAC do?

      CAC is parents advocating for children with special needs.  CAC meets once a month to identify the needs of students with special needs in our District, and advises the District on issues relating to special education.  CAC works to provide information to parents and also listens to parents' concerns.  CAC's ultimate purpose is to participate in a partnership with the school district that enhances the education of each child with special needs.

When does CAC meet?

      CAC meetings are held on the Third Monday of each month from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  CAC meetings are always open to the public.  Each meeting features a parent forum, a time during which parents from the District are invited to express their concerns relating to special education.  You need not be a CAC committee member to attend a CAC meeting or speak during the parent forum.  Please call 457-3227 for specific meeting locations, as they are subject to change.
