Norfolk Special Education Parent Advisory Council
The Norfolk Special Education Parents Advisory Council (SEPAC) strives to collaborate with and advise the school committee and administration to continually improve the educational experience for all Norfolk children and families. We promote improved education and success for students with disabilities, ensuring they receive equal access to education within our schools and community.
The Norfolk SEPAC provides a network for parents of children with disabilities to access local resources, gain support and share ideas. SEPAC encourages families to be involved in all district policy discussions.
Norfolk SEPAC is a 501(c)(3) volunteer-led organization. All donations to our organization are tax deductible.

HELPING THE COMMUNITY
The Norfolk SEPAC is run by Norfolk parents and provides a great support system for families with all types of needs. We offer educational presentations, resources, information on the IEP process, and opportunities for parents and students to connect in a supportive and inclusive environment.
BENEFITS AND ACCESS
Our goal is to promote great opportunities for parents of children with special needs. We believe that with access to the right resources, children can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.
