BR-SEPAC Meeting

The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) will be holding a meeting for the 2013-2014 school year on Tuesday, April 15,2014 at 6:30 pm. Following the meeting, at 7 pm there will be a lecture titled, Building An Inclusive School and Community: Lessons Learned Over a Decade of Work and Challenges. This lecture will be given by Dr. Joe Petner. It will be interactive and focus on issues of school culture, development of a collaborative model of teaching between general education and special education staff, leveraging resources within the district and community to support the inclusion model. The discussion will also consider achievement data, concerns for natural proportions, and the ongoing challenges of continual assessment and development of best practices. The meeting will be held at the Bridgewater-Raynham High School Library Computer Lab (second floor) located at 415 Center Street, Bridgewater, MA. The BR-SEPAC is made up of parents that represent about 850 children with special needs within the Bridgewater-Raynham School district. 

The BR-SEPAC works collaboratively with the Bridgewater-Raynham Public Schools and Bridgewater-Raynham School Committee to provide support and information for parents, school personnel, and the community about disabilities and the special education process. The Bridgewater-Raynham SEPAC accomplishes this through regular meetings, workshops, presentations, and special events. The meeting is free and open to all.
