Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG)

Do you have a child who receives special education and/or related services through the Springfield Public Schools (this includes students with out-of-district placements)?

If you answered yes then you are eligible to be a member of our district SEPAG.

What is SEPAG: A Special Education Parent Advisory Group that is a state-mandated, district-level, parent-driven group charged with providing input to the local school district on system-level challenges in special education and related services.

Some of the topics that Springfield Public Schools SEPAG meetings will include:

  1. Updates on local and state-wide special education policies.

  2. Speaker nights- where we will invite local speakers to talk about topics that are relevant to special education.

  3. An opportunity to bring up questions and concerns regarding Springfield Public Schools special services.
