Presentation Sponsored by BR-SEPAC

The Bridgewater-Raynham Special Education Parents Advisory Council (BR-SEPAC) will be holding a presentation for the 2015-2016 school year titled, BASIC RIGHTS In Special Education, A Workshop for Parents and Professionals on Tuesday, March 8th at 9 am. A presenter from the Federation for Children with Special Needs will provide families with an introduction to their rights and responsibilities under:

• Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
• Massachusetts Special Education Law
This workshop is designed to help parents learn to be effective partners with their child’s school to decide their child’s eligibility for special education, and to plan, make decisions and monitor their child’s progress in school.

The presentation will be held at the Bridgewater-Raynham Central Office Conference Room located at 166 Mt Prospect St, 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.
