Welcome to the Franklin SEPAC!
The Franklin SEPAC Executive Committee has been hard at work this summer planning and exciting year!
Our first workshop for the 2014/2015 school year will be help on Wednesday, September 17th at 7pm. We will have a guest speaker discussing "Basic Rights" for children with Special needs. Franklin Public Schools administrators will also be discussing Special Education Programs in Franklin.
All workshops take place on the 3rd floor training room of the Franklin Municipal Building, 355 East Central Street. All workshop are free and open to the public.
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). (M
