Welcome to MassPAC at the
Federation for Children with Special Needs

NEW for SUMMER 2020 – SEPAC Summer School!

MassPAC is starting a new initiative for SEPAC officers and members to learn how to build and grow a successful SEPAC.  The series of zoom webinars will run for 10 weeks this summer, starting on July 7th from 7-8 PM.  The first 30 minutes will be a presentation on a topic and a sharing of resources about that topic.  Then, at 7:30 we will have a listening session and conversation on that topic.  We welcome new and seasoned SEPAC officers and members to share best practices. 

The Federation is working remotely – send your SEPAC and MassPAC questions to masspac@fcsn.org.  Things are changing weekly so check in often – Special Education Guidance and Resources can be found at COVID-19 Special Education Resources.
