A Special Education Parent Advisory Group or SEPAG is a state-mandated, district-level, parent-driven group charged with providing input to the local school district on system-level challenges in special education and related services. It is a collaboration and partnership with the district to better improve services in special education. The SEPAG meets to collaborate with the district’s director of Special Services and administrators. SEPAG supports the development and implementation of programs and best practices to sufficiently meet the needs of special education students and families in the district. SEPAG offers the opportunity to raise questions, voice your concerns, and provide direct input to administrators regarding support services. SEPAG also provides parents and families opportunities to learn about district programs, services, and resources.

Who should attend SEPAG meetings?

SEPAG meetings are open to all members of the school community but may be especially helpful to anyone with a student eligible for or receiving services under an IEP or 504 plan, a student we are currently evaluating, or those considering a request for an evaluation.
