Mission Statement

Westwood SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) is an independent advocacy group with the mission to work for the understanding of, respect for, and support of all children with disabilities in our community.


Requirements for PAC's in Massachusetts:

The Massachusetts Special Education Law, Chapter 71B of the Massachusetts General Laws, requires a school district to establish a PAC, and assigns both an advisory and a participatory function to the PAC.  Click here to read the document from DESE regarding Guidance for SEPAC's.


Membership is offered to all parents of students found eligible for special education, as well as other interested parties.
