The MV SELPA CAC is launching a monthly newsletter! Each edition will have highlights from the previous months events and heads up about upcoming CAC events and other Bay Area events that may be of interest to special needs families. We promise to only send follow-up emails if there is a correction to be made or the schedule has changed.

Who do I call for help? 

Although you can find many resources on your own, we encourage families to contact their teacher, case manager if you have any questions or concerns.   If they are unable to answer your questions, principals or program specialists are here to assist you.
