Special Education Parent-Teachers Association (SEPTA)
The Special Education Parent Teachers Association (SEPTA) brings together parents, teachers, administrators, learning specialists, and professionals with an interest in the education of children in our school district who have special needs. The SEPTA Board is comprised of parents from every school level (elementary, middle, and high) and represents the needs of students across the educational continuum (K-12), as well as preschoolers with disabilities. Through membership dues, fund-raising efforts, and grant opportunities, SEPTA seeks to fund and facilitate many worthwhile programs for the benefit of special education and regular education students and their families. Most significantly, SEPTA works to arrange for speakers with vast professional knowledge of special education and related disciplines to help parents understand and navigate their child’s educational process in the most effective manner possible.
The SEPTA Board welcomes new members. Please visit the North Shore Schools website for more information about SEPTA. The SEPTA Board encourages you to contact the school district with questions and concerns about the special education program. You may feel free to contact any of the SEPTA Board Members to talk about questions or concerns that you might have. Please contact them at the following email address:
