SEPAC is a state-mandated, district-level, parent-driven advisory council that provides input to the local school board on system-level challenges in special education and related services
A SEPAC gives parents the opportunity to provide direct input to their school district about policies, programs, practices, and services that have an impact on students with disabilities and their families. An effective SEPAG can increase the proactive involvement of families by inviting input that can be used to shape local special education policy.
An effective SEPAC that uses parental input can:
help improve educational outcomes and well-being for all students including those with disabilities
help identify unmet needs;
help shape the development of programs, services, and policies
improve district culture and climate
