Under Regulation 464/97, the school board is required to make available the “personnel and facilities” for the “proper functioning of the committee”. (Section 10 (1)). In most school boards this means, at least, a staff for administrative support, including recording and distributing Meeting Minutes, providing notification of Meetings, and other communications, and ensuring meeting rooms are available and refreshments provided, if necessary. (For further discussion on administrative support for SEAC meetings, see Section 5.1.)
SEAC Meetings are usually attended by a supervisory officer responsible for special education. In addition, some school boards assign additional staff to attend SEAC on a regular basis as a resource to the committee.
