Lexington Special Education Parents - Lexington SEPTA - Special Education Parent Teacher Association
Upcoming Meeting:
Thursday, November 6th, 2014
7:00 to 9:00 PM Lexington High School Media Center, Room 147
Basic Rights—Overview of Key Special Educations Laws
Presented by the Federation for Children with Special Needs, this workshop introduces participants to the federal and state special education laws, special education process, parent and student rights and how to resolve differences with the school.  Sometimes referred to as "boot camp" for special education parents, you will learn critical information even if you are a "seasoned" parent.
  
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"
