Special Education Parent Advisory Councils

A local Special Education Parent Advisory Council is a district-level, parent-driven group that provides input to the local school district on system-level challenges in special education and related services. There are any names for this group throughout the state, but the purpose is the same; advise, advocate, and offer guidance to the district. Local Special Education Parent Advisory Councils are not required under IDEA or NC law; however, many districts have established councils.
