Does your child have an IEP or 504 plan? Then check out the Newton Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) at newtonpac.org. SEPAC is a volunteer organization of parents of children with special needs from preschool through high school. The council runs an online forum where parents can ask each other about special education programs, issues, policies and resources both within and outside of the public-school system. SEPAC works directly with the school administration regarding our childrens’ special education through our school liaisons, meetings with the Assistant Superintendent of Student Services and by attending Newton School Committee meetings. In addition to sponsoring monthly speakers in Newton, the council publicizes presentations and conferences held by other SEPACs and organizations in the area. Newton SEPAC also holds monthly board meetings – that are open to all parents – whose dates are listed on our website. In the meantime, you can join our online community at newtonpac.org.
