MassPAC at the Federation is the statewide project providing information, training, and networking opportunities to Massachusetts special education parent advisory councils (SEPACs) and the professionals who collaborate with them. MassPAC encourages family engagement and parent-school district partnerships.
SEPAC SUMMER LEADERSHIP TRAINING
SEPAC Summer School will take place again this Summer 2021! Get ready for 10 weeks of learning and fun beginning on Tuesday, July 6th from 7-8PM and continuing until September 7th. The first 30 minutes will have a short presentation on a topic and sharing of resources. At 7:30, attendees will join breakout rooms to have a conversation and network.
