Massachusetts Association of Special Education Parent Advisory Councils (MassPAC)

What is a SEPAC?

A SEPAC is a Special Education Parent Advisory Council. Every public school district in Massachusetts is required to establish a SEPAC. Massachusetts state law assigns both an advisory and participatory function to SEPACs. Membership is offered to all parents of children with disabilities and other interested parties.

MassPAC is a project of the Federation which supports both volunteer parent leaders and school district administrators to build effective parent-school partnerships to support family engagement.
