Who We Are
The Natick Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is an all-volunteer organization of parents and caregivers of children receiving support services in the Natick public schools and private school settings. In the Natick school system, there are more than 800 children on Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), and 504 plans. Whether your child is already receiving support or you are trying to determine if your child needs services, we are here to provide a parent’s perspective and connections.
The mission of the Natick SEPAC is to work for the understanding of, respect for, and support of all children with special needs in the community. To that end, the Natick SEPAC will work to:
· Support and encourage an innovative educational environment where students with disabilities have equal access to educational opportunities and a community environment where all students are encouraged to reach their full potential.
· Promote a network for parents of students with disabilities and provide a forum to share information and discuss matters of relative interest and concern.
· Support communication and programs within the community to encourage understanding, respect, acceptance and inclusion of students with disabilities.
· Collaborate with the school community to continually improve the educational opportunities available throughout the Natick Public Schools that cultivate improved educational outcomes for students with disabilities.
