504 Plans
A Workshop for Parents and Professionals by Bonnie Polakoff, Advocate
This workshop will explain 504 Plan eligibility criteria under Federal Civil Rights law and explore the protections provided for students with disabilities. Key differences between an IEP and a 504 Plan will be discussed, as well as standard and non-standard accommodations that can be used in the classroom and for assessment.


  
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"
