Message from Cambridge SE-PAC Liaison Zuleka Queen-Postell
I am a lifetime resident of Cambridge and a Cambridge Public School Graduate. My position as SE-PAC Liaison (Special Education Parent Advisory Council Liaison) is to serve ALL families who have a student in Cambridge with an IEP or 504 plan by helping you to better understand your Special Education Rights, assisting with navigating the CPSD programming, and organizing opportunities for families to meet with the school committee and administration to add an important voice to a school district’s dialogue and decision making.
ALL parents of students with an IEP or 504 are members of the Cambridge SE-PAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council). SE-PAC’s have tremendous potential to have a positive impact on special education programs in a school district. PACs can provide invaluable activities for parents, and as mentioned above add an important voice to a school district’s dialogue and decision making.
