What is a Special Education Parent Advisory Council?

Massachusetts Special Education (SpEd) Regulations state that each school committee shall establish a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) on Special Education. A PAC is a formally organized group of individuals committed to the best possible services for children with special needs.

Who should join the Special Education PAC?

  • Parents and/or guardians of children who receive any type of special education services or accommodations in school, such as an Individualized Education Program (IEP), a 504 accommodation, or out-of-district placement.
  • Parents who think their child may have some learning issues or differences.
  • Parents who would like to understand or have an interest in the Special Education process.
  • Parents, educators, or any members of the community who want to learn more!

Why Get Involved?

  • To network with other parents in the community.
  • To share your own expertise and experiences with other parents.
  • To learn about the services available for children with learning issues or differences.
  • To learn to advocate for your child's needs more effectively.
