cropped-logo_sepac1blue.jpg
BLOOMFIELD SEPAC is an independent, volunteer-run organization made up of parents helping parents. SEPAC helps parents become better informed about Special Education in the Bloomfield school district. We provide resources and support for families of students who require an IEP and special services while at school. We work in a cooperative effort with the Bloomfield Special Services Department and the Bloomfield Board of Education to help ensure every child is getting the best education possible.

SEPAC meetings provide, but are not limited to, information on how to read an IEP, what channels go through if you have questions and concerns about your child’s education and services, what you can do about bullying, knowing your child’s and family’s legal rights, and how to handle transitions for your child.

Please visit our website www.bloomfieldsepac.com and join our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloomfieldsepac/ for more information.

We look forward to seeing you at our meetings this year.

SEPAC es una organización independiente de padres voluntarios que tienen como objetivo ayudar a otros padres a estar informados sobre Educación Especial en el distrito escolar de Bloomfield, NJ. Nuestra organización provee recursos y apoyo a familias con estudiantes que tiene un IEP o un plan 504 y que reciben servicios especiales mientras asisten a la escuela. Trabajamos en colaboración con el Departamento de Educación Especial y la Junta de Educación de la ciudad de Bloomfield, NJ para de esta manera ayudar a garantizar que cada estudiante reciba la mejor educación posible.

Las reuniones de SEPAC proveen, pero no están limitadas a, dar información acerca de cómo leer un IEP o un plan 504 y qué vías se deben seguir si tiene preguntas o inquietudes acerca de la educación de su hijo/a y los servicios que debe recibir. SEPAC también ayuda en circunstancias de bullying e informa a padres de los derechos de su hijo/a y de la familia. Además, guía a padres cuando se presentan transiciones en la educación de su hijo/a.

Le invitamos a visitar nuestra página Web www.bloomfieldsepac.com y unirse a nuestra página en Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloomfieldsepac/  para recibir más información.

Esperamos verlos en nuestras reuniones este año.

START/SPAN Inclusion Webinar Sept. 14th at Noon.

From SPAN:

“Join us for a lunchtime webinar for parents and caregivers that focuses on best practices in supporting the inclusion of students with disabilities in general education programs to improve student outcomes. Inclusion is the practice of educating ALL students together – student with disabilities and students without disabilities- regardless of their abilities or readiness. Studies show that students with mild to significant disabilities in inclusive settings have increased academic achievement. Learn strategies for parents to effectively partner with their schools and districts in promoting best practices in inclusive education. Hear from parents that share their stories about the benefits of inclusion and why it is never too late to think about including your child. Participants will: *Learn the benefits of inclusion for ALL children *Become familiar with strategies and resources that enable families and educators to work collaboratively to create goals to support inclusion throughout the IEP decision-making process *Hear from parents and their experiences with inclusion *Identify next-steps for an inclusive climate in schools.”
