SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP SEPAG
SEPAG: A group of parents/guardians and educators who would like to gain an understanding of Special Education process and how this translates to the District’s Special Education program planning. The purpose of this group is to provide opportunities for parents and community members to offer input to their districts on critical issues related to students with disabilities.
New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:14-1.2(h) states:
Each Board of Education shall ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place in the district to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.
Vision: Our district’s SEPAG vision is to build a community of support, built on partnership, collaboration and voice.
Mission Statement: Our mission is to facilitate collaboration between students, parents, staff, and our community in order to promote inclusion, understanding of, respect for and support of all students with special needs in our community.
