Dear Fellow Parents & Caregivers,

We wanted to introduce ourselves and SEPAC, the Special Education Parents Advisory Council.   SEPAC is a parent organization that works with the Weston Schools Administration to ensure that the concerns of students with 504/IEP are heard.   Equally important, we offer networking and support for parents, presentations on issues of concern, and can help with questions regarding special education and the processes involved.   

Every district is required to have a SEPAC to help protect student rights.  However, here in Weston, we not only liaise with the administration, but also are supported by the Weston PTO to help better integrate with our community.

SEPAC is open to all members of the Weston community, those that our enrolled at our Weston schools and those that are in out-of-district or private placements. There is no cost to join.  There are several ways to stay informed and keep in touch.

  • First,  sign up for our email list here
  • Second,  join our Weston SEPAC Facebook page.   Here we not only share updates on our events, but also strategies for dealing with special needs, and other events around the area you may be interested in.
  • Third, read the weekly PTO newsletters
  • And finally, check out our website westonsepac.org.

In addition to presentations and speakers on topics of interest, we also hold monthly networking events, and activities for our special education families.  

Best,
Lisa Lappi Weston SEPAC Co-Chair

Maija Cirulis-Gooch Weston SEPAC Co-Chair
