Special Education Parent Advisory Group
Welcome to Leonia SEPAG
All families have a shared and vested interest in our educational programs, especially families who have a child with an identified learning disability or a different learning style. Parent-led committees offer parents the opportunity to work together to make a difference. The Special Education Parent Advisory Group welcomes ALL parents who are interested in learning more about how to best support their child during their academic career. Parents and Caregivers of students from Preschool through High School – and beyond – are welcome!
A Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) is established to:
- Collaborate with district administration to positively affect policies, practices, and programs for students with IEPs and 504s
- Promote inclusion and acceptance of students with special needs and learning challenges in school and extracurricular activities
- Service as a resource to parents through meetings, workshops, and social media presence
The Leonia SEPAG consists of a minimum of one parent liaison from each school including out of district schools. This volunteer must be a parent of a student who currently receives special education under IDEA or accommodations and modifications under Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. SEPAG parent liaisons will ensure their respective school is implementing SEPAG initiatives, attend SEPAG and PTO/A meetings, consult with fellow parent liaisons on issues pertaining to their schools and brainstorming ideas and solutions to present to key stakeholders.
