Who We Are:

The Westborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is a volunteer group of family members of children with disabilities or special learning needs.  We educate, support and exchange ideas and information with each other while collaborating with school professionals and administrators for the best educational experience and outcomes for our children.

 

SEPAC is created by Massachusetts law and serves as a voice for parents by advising the Westborough school administration and School Committee on special education related matters.

How do I know if SEPAC can help me?

If your child has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), or a 504 accomodation plan, if your child is struggling with academic, social, behavioral, physical or medical challenges or if you're concerned about your child and don't know where else to turn, SEPAC is for you.

 

Put simply, SEPAC is here to help you navigate through rough waters.   As a group we represent a reservior of collective knowledge and offer a safe location in which to discuss your concerns, hopes, frustrations and joys of finding your way through the complication journey of raising a child with learning differences.   We encourage parent participation from all interested community members.

In addition to SEPAC ENews Google Group, SEPAC has created a Closed Facebook Group that members can join to receive SEPAC information about upcoming events and notices via Facebook!   

A closed facebook group means that anyone can see the group and who is in it, but only members can see the posts.
