What is the SEPTA?
The Lexington Special Education Parent Teacher Association was developed in 2012 by the Lexington SEPAC executive committee.  This organization gives the SEPAC a 501(c) 3 status to better manage funds and also gives the PAC a seat at the PTA table.  We expect that this participation will be another way for the PAC to communicate special education topics and needs in the LPS community.
 
What is the SEPAC?
The Special Education Parent Advisory Council is a mandated organization under the current Massachusetts Special Education Regulations and is tasked with "advising the district on matter that pertain to the education and safety of students with disabilities; meeting regularly with school officials to participate in the planning, development, and evaluation of the school district's special education programs"
