The Needham SEPAC is a parents’ organization that provides information to parents and advocates collectively for children in the Needham special education program. This includes special needs children educated within Needham Public Schools and those with out-of-district placements.
There is no membership fee to join Needham SEPAC and we hold monthly public meetings designed to inform parents on issues of general interest and topics specific to Needham. We also hold special events which may incur a charge.
We meet regularly with the Needham school administration to ensure parental input in curriculum, policy, budget, and other issues. Our growing membership has made us more effective advocates for our special needs children.
If you are not already on our email alerts and newsletter list and wish to be so, please register using this form. Our email list is confidential, and email recipients do not see other email addresses.
We also have a Yahoo newsgroup for postings of interest to Needham parent members of the Needham SEPAC. Please join to ask questions and share resources and community meeting information.
We look forward to you attending Needham SEPAC meetings and special events!
