The Joys & Values of SPAN/START and Sharing Ideas With Other SEPAC Groups.

It was a great pleasure to attend the START Project & SPAN of NJ’s Essex County Roundtable last night. This very informative and useful exchange of ideas for SEPAC Organizations was led by

Ms. Alizo is a fiercely dedicated Advocate for Special Education  in New Jersey and throughout the nation. Her presentation was very inspiring and informative, as always. If you have yet to hear Ms. Alizo speak, please be sure to attend one of her presentations soon. You will be very glad that you did.

Thanks also to Ms. Michele Tyler of SPAN/START, Cecilia Raubertas

who spoke about the issue of Disproportion-ality facing some school districts. 

Another highlight for me was having the opportunity to meet the very helpful and dedicated members of various Special Ed Parents groups throughout Essex County, including wonderful folks from NEWARK, SOUTH ORANGE/MAPLEWOOD, WEST ORANGE, LIVINGSTON as well as the Special Ed Supervisor from ROSELAND and the Coordinator of Special Services/LDTC from ESSEX FELLS.

It was a great night and one filled with ideas for improving our Bloomfield SEPAC!
