Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG)

Mission Statement: The mission of the Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) is to establish a district-wide partnership among parents, teachers, administration, and the Board of Education to support students with special needs as they progress through high school and create their post-secondary pathways.

Special Education Parent Advisory Groups are required for all school districts in New Jersey. The purpose of these groups is to provide opportunities for parents and community members to offer input to their districts on critical issues. SEPAG meetings are not the forum for a discussion about individual students. Meeting topics are limited to those that impact all students or groups of students. New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:14-1.2(h) states: Each board of education shall ensure that a Special Education Parent Advisory Group is in place in the district to provide input to the district regarding students with disabilities.
