PAC Responsibilities

The Parent Advisory Committee provides input in the development of the ISD Plan for Special Education Services. The ISD Plan describes how special education services will be delivered and how the rights of parents and students will be ensured.

The ISD Plan is a very important document. It must be approved by the Michigan State Board of Education before the ISD can receive funds for special education. The Parent Advisory Committee may file formal objections to the Plan if members feel that the Plan violates provisions of special education law.

Legal Basis
Michigan Special Education Rules state that each ISD must have a Parent Advisory Committee for special education planning (R340.1838). The rules also describe the membership and responsibilities of the committee.
