Gopen Fellowship Opportunity

The Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Network is seeking applicants with developmental disabilities for the 2018-19 Barbara Wilensky Gopen Fellowship. This Fellowship is an opportunity for a person with a developmental disability who has finished school to work part-time in an office environment on a disability project of interest. The Fellowship is for one year, from July 2018-June 2019.
The Fellowship is based at the Institute for Community Inclusion/UMass Boston, and the Fellow works occasionally at the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council in Quincy. The annual salary for 20 hours per week is $20,000, paid biweekly. Individuals concerned about how the Gopen Fellowship’s income might affect their Social Security or Medicaid benefits can open/contribute to an ABLE Account.

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.

Parents and guardians of children who have a student on an IEP or 504 plan were invited to nominate one special person in the school districts who have made a difference to their family or student during the current school year. Among the honorees were special education teachers, cafeteria workers, general education teachers, tutors, administration, and two former co-presidents of the SEPAC.

Congratulations and thank you, honorees, for your dedication to our students and for believing that every student deserves an extraordinary education.
