    Mission:  The mission of the M-SEPAC is to work by Communicating, Evaluating, Advising and Educating within the community for understanding of, respect for, and support of all children with special needs in the community.

     

    Currently, Marlborough Public Schools does not have an active Special Education Parent Advisory Council.  Any parent of a Special Education Student enrolled in Marlborough Public Schools who is interested in taking on a leadership role, please contact Jody O'Brien, Director of Student Services 

    The Marlborough Public Schools is in the process of submitting an Alternative Compliance Waiver to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in order to provide a series of district level parent training and participation events as an alternative to a district level Special Education Parent Advisory Council.  The link to the DESE advisory can be found here.  Anyone who would like to provide feedback regarding the waiver application can contact Jody O'Brien.
