SEPAC

Special Education Parents Advisory Committee (SEPAC)

The goal of SEPAC is for the district to communicate information outward, as well as provide the families of our students a stronger voice to enhance our department and our students’ success. Belleville's SEPAC committee seeks to enhance the partnership between families and schools in order to facilitate student access to needed services. Committee meetings may include guest speakers both within the school district and from local resource organizations. Meetings are also an opportunity for families to network and share information among each other.

All SEPAC information sessions will be open to the families of students with special needs. However, committee members will help set the meeting agenda by collaborating with administrators about the topics discussed. SEPAC Committee meetings will be open to committee members.

 

For parent of a student with an IEP who would like to be a member of SEPAC, please send an email to: ryan.kline@belleville.k12.nj.us.
