Westwood Special Education Parent Advisory Council
Our mission is to work for the understanding of, respect for, and support of children of all abilities in our community.
What is the Westwood SEPAC?
The Westwood Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is a state-mandated, parent-run group working to promote a network of parents, guardians, and caregivers of children with special needs. In addition, SEPAC partners with the Director of Student Services and the School Committee on policies. We receive input from parents, teachers, providers, and others to encourage understanding, acceptance, and inclusion of all special education students.
