Welcome to F-SEPAC     

Being the parent or guardian of a child with special needs comes with lots of challenges. The amount of information you need to help your child can be overwhelming. Just know that you’re not alone. Approximately 23% of children in the Framingham school district have special needs. The Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council, also known as the F-SEPAC, is here to help and support you.

Our Mission

F-SEPAC is run by parents who are concerned about the special needs of children in the Framingham schools.   We are a district-wide resource to parents or guardians of children with special needs – offering them information, support, and meetings throughout the school year. As a group the F-SEPAC is mandated and supported by Massachusetts law.

We are a united voice for special needs children and considered an advisory committee to the Framingham school district and its Special Education Department.   We work with them in partnership to determine appropriate programs and services for children with special needs.   We are a group that works to support and protect access to quality education for all children – especially those with disabilities – and participate in decision making that affects policies, rules, and regulations.

F-SEPAC’s mission is to work for the understanding, respect, and support of all children with special needs in Framingham.  We provide opportunities for parents to share experiences and information and come together to learn more about challenges facing children with special needs.
