1. Officers Badly Needed for Next Year: Elections May 1
The Medway SEPAC’s next general meeting will be on Tuesday, April 10, 2018. Medway’s Director of Student Services, Kathleen Bernklow, and Director of Finance and Operations, Donald Aicardi, will speak with SEPAC members about a variety of topics related to special education in Medway, including the special education funding process and Extended Year Services.
At the April meeting, the SEPAC will also begin the process of electing officers for the 2018-2019 school year by selecting an election coordinator and accepting nominations for officers. Elections will occur at the May 1 SEPAC meeting. At the moment, the current board is only aware of one individual (Lisa Jackey) who is planning to run for any SEPAC Office. We can’t function with only one person, so PLEASE consider running! See our previous post for more info about elections and officer roles, and contact email@example.com with any questions.
Additionally, because our March meeting was cancelled due to snow, we have not yet had the opportunity to vote on our updated bylaws. We will vote to approve/reject those changes at the April meeting, as well. If you are able, please review the changes prior to the meeting so that we can discuss and vote efficiently.
SEPAC Members and Friends,
Medway SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) would like your input for our Second Annual Educator Appreciation Award
We would like to honor some of the Medway Public school Faculty & Staff who go above and beyond to help our children to succeed. Please help us to identify those educators who deserve this recognition.
If an educator who has worked with your child this year deserves this award, please take 5-10 minutes to nominate him or her via the 2018 Educator Appreciation Award Google form before April 23, 2018.
Nominees can be any member of the Medway Public Schools staff. They do NOT have to be a special educator, if they have made a difference for a child with special educational needs.
All nominees will be recognized. Award recipients will be selected based on the content of the nominations, and awards will be presented at the opening convocation of the 2018-2019 school year.
There is no limit to the number of staff members a family may nominate. However, please use your discretion so that we can be sure to recognize truly outstanding efforts.
Thank you for taking the time to help us celebrate those in our district who go the extra mile for our students. We look forward to reading your nominations!
We have rescheduled the workshop “An IEP For My Child” that was cancelled due to snow on March 13.
Please join us for the rescheduled event on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.
This training explains the Individual Education Program (IEP) document, its
development, how to articulate a vision, write measurable annual goals, monitor a
child’s progress and understand how the document will support a student.
Come learn with us how to create an effective IEP for your child!
