Wellington Catholic District School Board


The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) is an advisory committee mandated through the Education Act as a standing committee of each school board. The committee reports to the school board and makes recommendations to the board regarding special education programs and services. SEAC meetings are held on a monthly basis, with a minimum of nine meetings per year.

The Wellington Catholic District School Board believes every student has individual learning needs. Some students have exceptional learning needs and may require special programs and services.

A student with exceptional needs is a learner whose behaviour, communication, intellectual, physical or multiple exceptionalities are such that he/she is considered to need special education programs as defined in the Education Act.
