Welcome to the Somers Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA)
Somers Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA) is a district-wide PTA whose primary role is to provide resources and support to parents, teachers, and children who receive special education services through an IEP, 504 Plan, related support services such as resource room, counseling, and speech, occupational or physical therapy, and students who are twice exceptional or gifted.
SEPTA strives to enhance the lives of students with special needs through:
- Social, Recreational, and Educational Programs
- Parent Education and Resources
- Professional Development and Grants
- Student Project Grants
- Recognition of Outstanding Practices and Achievements in Special Education for both faculty and students
SEPTA invites parents, teachers, and community members with an interest in improving the educational, social-emotional, and recreational opportunities of children with special needs to join our membership. Anyone is welcome to join SEPTA.

You are cordially invited to a SEPTA parent coffee and conversation. Join us for a casual conversation and a chance to meet and support other parents in the district through discussion and sharing of ideas. Your child does not need to currently be receiving support services for you to attend. Other parents are our best resources, so come meet some of them and tap into this breadth of knowledge and experience! Please RSVP at email@example.com
Partner PTA groups, SEPTA, PES PTA, and SIS PTA are joining forces to help build friendships through cooperative and inclusive play, called Refreshing Recess, during the second and third grade recess sessions. Activities such as Rock-Paper-Scissor Showdown, Friendship Walks, Obstacle Courses, and Group Chalk Art murals will be offered to help facilitate social skills among peers. The activities are all run by PTA volunteers and fourth and fifth grade sessions are coming in the near future!
