Special Education Parent Advisory Group

The Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG)

Raising a child is a big and often worrisome responsibility, but for parents, guardians, and other caregivers of children with physical or emotional problems, learning disabilities, or social difficulties, these challenges can feel even larger.

 

The Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG), a parent-led group, can help to support families and others who face these challenges every day. Our goal is to support parents whose children have unique challenges, whether or not they receive special education services.  We will do this by hosting meetings for parents and other caregivers, sharing information about resources in the community, and discuss programs and/or policy changes and other relevant initiatives being considered by the district.

 

We will meet quarterly, when school is in session, to discuss current issues. Meetings can also include presentations from knowledgeable speakers on a wide range of topics, or simply informal gatherings to allow caregivers to share ideas, network, and bond and support one another.

 

In September, look for our first meeting invitation.  We hope to see you at our first meeting!

 

SEPAG GUIDE

 

LEGAL BACKGROUND The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, last amended in 2004 (IDEA 2004), encourages parents and educators to work collaboratively, emphasizing that as a team they are uniquely suited to make decisions that help improve the educational experiences and outcomes of children with disabilities.

 

In New Jersey school districts are required to have a special education parent advisory group (SEPAG): Each board of education shall ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place in the district to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.
