Parents at VOC Conference

The mission of Cambridge SE-PAC is to work for understanding of, respect for, and support of all children with special needs in the community. 

  • Our purpose is to educate and support parents in advocating for their children. 
  • Our goal is to have an active network of parents who work together to provide the best services and programs for our children. 
  • Our guiding principle: Services are determined by the needs of the child, not the availability of programs or resources.

What is a SE-PAC?

All school districts in Massachusetts are required by law to support the creation of a special education parent advisory council, or SE-PAC. SE-PACs are charged with advising the School Committee on matters related to special education, assisting in the evaluation of special education programs, and educating parents and guardians about the rights of their children under special education law.
