WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Regarding Inclusion for Students with Disabilities
In Our Schools
When: Thursday, September 5th from 10:00 – 11:30 am
Where: Conference Room 4, Ripley Building, Meriam Road
The Concord Public Schools and Concord-Carlisle Regional School District together with the Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) want to hear from parents about inclusion in our schools. We would like to learn from you directly about approaches that have been successful for your child with disabilities, where you think change is needed and gains could be made.
One of the priorities highlighted this year from the District Strategic Plan is the inclusion of students with disabilities and the valuing of all learners. The district and schools will be creating goals related to ensuring all students feel welcome and valued in our schools.
There are two ways you can help by providing this important feedback. Firstly, we are holding a parent focus group, jointly hosted by Laurie Hunter and the Special Education Parents Advisory Council (SEPAC).
The focus group attendees will also include Ruth Grube, Director of Student Services, members of the School Committee and also a representative from each building from Pre K through to CCHS.
Secondly, if you are unable to attend or would prefer to share your information confidentially, you can email the SEPAC Co-Presidents Carol Yelle and Shaina Brito at email@example.com or Superintendent Hunter at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is SEPAC?
We are parents of special education students who have voluntarily joined together to provide information and support to families of children in special education. We meet regularly with school administrators to give our input on the policies and programs that affect our children.
The mission of the Concord and Concord-Carlisle Regional School District Special Education Parent Advisory Council is to provide education and information to parents, caregivers, and the broader community on special education issues and services, to establish better understanding of, respect for, and support of special education, and to work with the Concord Public Schools and Concord-Carlisle Regional School District to ensure that students’ needs under Massachusetts Special Education regulations 603 CMR 28.07(04)* and other applicable laws are being met.
*Please refer to our bylaws for wording regarding this regulation
