Parents and SEPAC Members,
We hope that the school year is off to a smooth start for you and your children! For those who may be new to the SEPAC or to Special Education in Medway, welcome! The Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is here to support you as parents of students in special education and to provide parent input to the school district regarding special education programming and the needs of students with disabilities. We hold monthly meetings, frequently featuring a speaker, that are open to everyone. For more info, see our brochure, which you can find at our website: https://medwayspedpac.wordpress.com
Our first meeting of the school year will be on October 17. This meeting will feature a presentation on the transition to college among students with special needs by Dr. Jennifer DelRey, a psychologist and former Coordinator of Disability Services at College of the Holy Cross. We will also do some back-to-school SEPAC business, including holding officer elections and identifying SEPAC goals for this school year. Bring your ideas about how to make the SEPAC work for you this year, and consider joining the board or volunteering to help out with specific tasks. We plan to start our business at 6:45 so that we can get to Dr. Del Rey’s talk as close to 7 as possible. Please come at 6:45 to vote for SEPAC officers and discuss goals for the year!
Continue Reading for updates on our Meeting Dates for the remainder of the year, Educator Appreciation Awards, Ways to Get Involved, Proposed Goals for this year, and a Proposed change to our Bylaws.
Be sure to check out our Facebook page, where we post not only our events, but those of neighboring SEPACs and other organizations that might be of interest to our parents.
We hope to see you in October!
Sarah Brady (Acting Chair) and Lisa Jackey (Acting Secretary)
