Newton SEPAC holds a variety of gatherings and presentations throughout the school year. All events are open to anyone interested in special education. Discussion topics relate to supporting parents of students receiving special education services in Newton, providing feedback to and gathering updates from the NPS Student Services administration, advising the district and School Committee on key issues, and maintaining the Newton SEPAC as a strong volunteer-based organization.
Open Board Meetings occur monthly, and dates are posted early in the school year.
Planning Meetings (internal) happen frequently and focus on development and advertising of informational presentations.
Meetings with NPS Leadership generally occur monthly, or as needed.
