Boards are required to establish a Special Education Advisory Committee.

Some areas of focus are: philosophy and goals, policies and procedures, organizational structures, program delivery methods, services and facilities, funding, and the annual review of the Special Education Board Plan
The committee consists of Catholic representatives from up to 12 community associations, and two trustees, all appointed by the Board for a four-year term.
Current membership Associations:
- Autism Ontario
- Community Living Campbellford and Brighton

SEAC holds regular monthly meetings. The meetings are usually in the Boardroom at the Peter L. Roach Catholic Education Centre. Meetings may also be held in schools to acquaint SEAC members with staff, facilities, and the specific programs our schools provide. Meetings are open to the public.
