A new year brings with it the opportunity to look at the future and make a fresh start. For many of us, it also brings creating new IEPs and goals for our children. The January newsletter is all about the IEP and connecting you to some of the resources that may help you along the journey.

Congratulations SEPAC Appreciation Award Recipients!

Last night the SEPAC and the Concord Public and Concord-Carlisle Regional School Committees honored twenty-seven people from the Concord Public Schools and Concord-Carlisle Regional School District with this year’s SEPAC Appreciation Awards.
