Welcome to the Franklin SEPAC!


      

NOVEMBER WORKSHOP: THIRD ANNUAL TRANSITION FAIR!!


Back by popular demand...the SEPAC Transition Fair! Join us on Thursday, November 17th beginning at 7:00, to meet with a variety of agencies from early intervention up through adult services to talk about transition. Representatives from each level of the Franklin Public Schools will be in attendance, along with Dean College, Valley Criterion, Bristol Community College, Mass Rehab, DDS, DMH, HMEA, the Kennedy-Donovan Center and many more. All of the groups attending are looking forward to speaking with you, answering your questions, and addressing any concerns you may have regarding transition and your child. It is always a good idea to look ahead to find out what comes next! The Fair will be held in the Horace Mann/Oak Street School Cafeteria, 224 Oak Street, Franklin. As always, this event is free and open to the public. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Thank you all who braved the wind and the rain to join us a few weeks ago at Tangerini's Farm.  We loved seeing all of the smiles and fun costumes!!  Here are a few photos from the event...we really did have fun!!








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.






About Us:

  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).
