    • Social, Recreational, and Educational Programs

    • Professional Development and Grants

    • Student Project Grants

    • Recognition of Outstanding Practices and Achievements in Special Education for both faculty and students

    Wednesday, January 16th 7 PM 

    Join us for casual conversation and a chance to meet other parents in the district who have a child in any grade who learns differently or has social or other needs.  Your child does not need to be currently receiving support services for you to attend.  Other parents are our best resources.  Come meet some of them and tap into this breadth of knowledge and experience.
    Please RSVP at rsvpforsepta@gmail.com for meeting location.  New parents are always welcome!
