What is SEPAG?
The Ringwood Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) is a parent advisory group, which serves to provide a forum for special education parents/guardians to discuss policies, programs, and practices that impact services and supports for children with special needs. Discussions pertain to the education, health, and safety of children directly affected by programs administered by the Ringwood Public School System.
One of the goals of SEPAG is to increase parents'/guardians', as well as the greater community’s, understanding of the district’s special education programs and services. This can be through special presentations by speakers on various topics which pertain to education, or by information provided by other area support organizations. Family involvement is encouraged. As parents of special needs children ourselves, we understand your concerns, and hope to offer you the tools, information, and support you need to be the best possible advocate for your child.
