Welcome to Needham SEPAC

We are parents of special education students who have joined together to provide information and support to each other. 

We meet regularly with school administrators to give our input on the policies and programs that affect our children.


All parents are encouraged to attend our monthly business meetings. During the first hour we meet with administrators to discuss topics of common interest. Then parents remain for a guided conversation on the "topic of the month," which will help us determine agenda items for future meetings.

This month's agenda will include:

  • Transportation Discussion: Shane Marchand, Transportation Director for Needham Public Schools 
    Shane will join us to answer our question on topics related to both in-district and out of district transportation. If there are topics you wish to have addressed — even if you can't make it to the meeting — please send them in an email to co-chairs@needhamsepac.org in advance of the meeting date.

Tuesday, October 16, 9:30–11:15 am
Emery Grover Building, 1330 Highland Avenue 

"Study Strategies: Moving Beyond 'I Read Over My Notes'"

For students with learning differences, reading over class material or notes is often not enough to enable them to perform well on tests and other assessments.  Presenter Kat Marsh will provide examples of practical study strategies that will help students learn and retain information, and she will also share ideas about helping students become self-motivated learners.  

Kat Marsh is the Lead Teacher and School Consultant at Commonwealth Learning Center in Danvers and the Learning Support Liaison at the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm in Beverly.  For over twenty years she has worked as a teacher and a tutor in many different learning environments, adapting her teaching and coaching strategies to fulfill diverse student, parent, and teacher needs.
