Welcome to the Franklin SEPAC!
WE NEED YOU!
Going forward, we would love to expand the board to include Representatives from each of the school buildings in town. We feel that this is a great way for SEPAC to learn more about successes and issues taking place in each building. If this is something that you would be interested in, please let us know...the time commitment is minimal.
In addition to Board positions, we are looking for volunteers to help with the planning of social events and fundraising. This is a great way to help out without taking on a Board position.
The mission of the Franklin Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is to promote a network for parents of children with disabilities and provide a forum to share information and discuss matters of relative interest and concern regarding our children. This group provides regular forums for Pupil Personnel Services and parents to share information and discuss pertinent issues; develops, maintains and shares tools and a resource guide; and raises awareness of children with special needs.
We host monthly workshops educating parents on special-needs topics. We run monthly parent support groups and periodic events for children. Franklin SEPAC also contributes an annual donation to Franklin's Special Education programs. We are a 501(c)(3) volunteer-run organization and rely on donations to help alleviate the costs of the above-mentioned programs.
Your participation will provide a unique opportunity to meet school officials and other parents, stay informed on policy and legislative changes, ask questions and discuss concerns, and learn something new. Your input into potential speaker topics, and other SEPAC initiatives of particular interest is also welcomed.
We are a member of the Massachusetts Association of Special Education Parent Advisory Councils (MassPAC)
