SAP & SICC
The IDEA State Advisory Panels (SAP) and State Interagency Coordinating Councils (SICC) address the needs of students with disabilities in K-12 special education programs, early intervention programs, and preschool.
This website is intended to address the information and communication needs of:
- SAP members and State Education Agency (SEA) staff
- SICC members and Lead Agency (LA) staff
- Individuals interested in learning about the functions of the SAPs and SICCs
The SAP-SICC workgroup hosts quarterly webinars to provide learning opportunities for SAPs and SICCS across the country. These webinars focus on timely topics including: interagency collaboration, leadership, engagement of families and other stakeholders, and emerging issues.
The SAP-SICC workgroup distributes periodic newsletters to provide engagement opportunities for SAPs and SICCS across the country. These newsletters address the information and communication needs of SAP members and State Education Agency (SEA) staff, SICC members and Lead Agency (LA) staff, and individuals interested in learning about the functions of SAPs and SICCs.
The SAP-SICC workgroup periodically develops and issues resources to support states in organizing, orienting, and providing learning opportunities for SAPs and SICCs across the country.
The SAP-SICC workgroup has compiled links to state resources that can be utilized as a model for other SAPs and SICCs. These resources include: membership directories, membership applications, member development/orientation, committees, outreach/public input, public comment procedures, vision and mission statements, SAP/SICC bylaws, SAP/SICC procedures, meeting agendas, meeting calendars/schedules, strategic plans, current priorities, annual reports, approved meeting minutes, state developed resources, and external resources.
