The Sudbury Special Education Parent Advisory Council (Sudbury SEPAC) is a positive and solution-oriented parent advisory council. We act as a resource and advisor to parents and educators of children with disabilities in the Sudbury PreK-8 Public Schools. SEPAC also works collaboratively with school and district officials to improve special education in Sudbury.

The Massachusetts Special Education Regulations require that each Massachusetts school district establish a volunteer parent advisory council (like the Sudbury SEPAC) to advise the district on matters that pertain to special education and the safety of students with disabilities. Membership is free and open to all individuals interested in special education in Sudbury.

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Guidance for Special Education Parent Advisory Councils is a good overview of why SEPACs are important.
