Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC)- A SEPAC is a Special Education Parent Advisory Council. Every public school district in Massachusetts is required to establish a SEPAC. Massachusetts state law assigns both an advisory and participatory function to SEPACs. Membership is offered to all parents of children with disabilities and other interested parties.  This link will bring you to the Natick SEPAC page. 

NOTICE OF PARENTAL RIGHTS AND PROCEDURAL SAFEGUARDS- School districts must take additional steps to ensure that parents have the information that school districts are required by law to provide to them. Districts may need to obtain interpreters or prepare additional translated materials describing the procedural rights of parents and students under IDEA-2004.  Translated documents are available on the DESE website or can be obtained from the Natick Office of Student Services.
