It is a collaboration and partnership with the district to better improve services in special education.
What SEPAG is not?

Wayne SEPAG Mission Statement
The mission of the Wayne Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) is to empower parents of children with special needs to be involved in advising on matters pertaining to the education, safety and health of students with special needs and learning differences. The SEPAG meets to collaborate with the district’s Student Support Services Director and administrators. SEPAG supports the development and implementation of programs and best practices to sufficiently meet the needs of special education students and families in the district. SEPAG offers the opportunity to raise questions, to voice your concerns, and to provide direct input to administrators regarding support services. SEPAG also provides parents and families opportunities to learn about district programs, services and resources.
