“New this year… SPED PTO and SEPAC will be working together more closely

Special Education PTO provides parents with tools and information to work collaboratively with the school district, and to be more effective advocates for their children with special educational needs. We generally dedicate the first 45-60 minutes of our monthly meetings to the featured conversation and then open the floor for attendees to ask individual questions, get support, share resources and connect with other members of the special education community. We are a Parenting Center sponsored group.

Each featured topic is our attempt to get those with similar concerns in the same room at the same time but all are always welcome! A representative of SOMA SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Committee) will give a brief update of their organization’s advocacy efforts at each meeting and we will conduct joint SPED PTO/SEPAC meetings at year’s beginning and end.

Questions? Email: Ann Leeb, annleeb@optonline.net
Please let us know in advance if you need childcare in order to attend our meetings.
