WEST VIRGINIA ADVISORY COUNCIL
FOR THE EDUCATION of EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN

(WVACEEC)

 
 About WVACEEC
 
 

      The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)requires each state to have an Advisory Panel. The WVACEEC is also mandated by State Code 18-20-6. The Council is charged in part with advising decision makers regarding the unmet needs of exceptional children.

      The mission adopted by the Council is to influence the State Board of Education, public policy makers, and West Virginia's citizens in ways that continuously improve educational outcomes for children with exceptionalities.

      The WVACEEC plans and initiates a variety of activities in order to meet its charge and achieve its mission, including scheduling and conducting meetings across the state to seek input and gain information about programs and services for exceptional students.

      These meetings provide a forum for programs to be showcased and issues to be identified. Local media, local and regional special education administrators, Parent Educator Resource Centers, principals, superintendents, school board members, school improvement councils, faculty senates and community members are informed about scheduled meetings.
