Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC)

The Denville Township Schools' SEPAC was formed to satisfy the New Jersey Department of Education mandate:

 Each district board of education is charged under the New Jersey Special Education Code to ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.

What is SEPAC?

 SEPAC is a group of volunteer parents and guardians of students with disabilities who work with Denville School&s administration and teachers to provide input to the Board of Education and serve as a support group by giving information to other parents in Denville. The committee is in place for parents new to special education or those who just want to know a little more about the processes of identification, evaluation, Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), inclusion and parental rights, to name a few.

How does SEPAC work?

 SEPAC meetings will be held the third Wednesday of each month during the school year. The meetings will be a mix of executive meetings (reporting meeting for SEPAC representatives and District personnel), parent information/training meetings, and parent/SEPAC input meetings. Updates and meeting information will be located on the website as well as the Friday Folders. SEPAC representatives are volunteering their time in coordination with the School, Faculty, and PTA to assist and share their experiences within the Denville Special Education programs & services. There is no formal training for the volunteers it is based on life experiences.

SEPAC representative emails are posted below. SEPAC representatives are advised to give general information and refer parents to the right person in the District to talk to about their concerns or questions.

For additional information please contact the Director of Special Services or your local SEPAC Parent Representative:
