SEPAG (Special Education Parent Advisory Group)
According to the NJ Special Education Code, a SEPAG is an advisory partnership built between parents and educators that work together to address system-level challenges affecting students with disabilities and their families. Every school district in New Jersey is required to have a SEPAG. A SEPAG is not a parent support group but is a way for the district to gain valuable input about our special education programs from the parent perspective.
Our Mission: SEPAG meets throughout the year to provide a forum for parents to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities, as well as gain valuable information about a variety of topics relevant to parents and families of students with disabilities. We welcome the participation of all parents on an ongoing basis or only when a topic is of interest.
District Vision: To provide an equitable and inclusive learning experience for all our students.
