Welcome to the Franklin SEPAC!

November Workshop: Transition Fair
Join us on Wednesday, November 19th on the third floor of the Municipal Building for our first ever Transition Fair.  This event is an open house that will run from 7:00 to 8:30.  On hand to answer your questions will be staff from the Franklin Public Schools, spanning ECDC to the High School.  In addition, outside organizations including DDS, Dean college, Early Intervention, Department of Mental Health and the Kennedy Donavan Center will be present to talk about programming for both very young children and those leaving high school.  Please feel free to drop by and visit those tables of interest to you. 

Next Workshop: January 25th, 2015
As the district has decided to transition to the PARCC testing beginning in 2015, our January workshop will no longer be "Preparing for the MCAS testing."  Instead, we will be taking a close look at ADHD and the ways that ADHD can impact Executive Functioning. 

Comedy Night Update

We would like to thank all of those who came out on November 7th, 2014 to support Franklin SEPAC.  It was an amazing night and a lot of laughs were had by all.  We are so pleased to be able to announce that this event raised almost $6,000.00!!  We want to extend our deep gratitude to all of those who attended the event and to all of the individuals and businesses whose donations made the night such a success.  These funds will allow us to continue our mission of creating learning and social opportunities for special needs families here in Franklin!     

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).   (M
