Woburn SEPAC

Back-To-School Meeting

Date: Tuesday, September 27
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Hurld-Wyman Elementary, 39 Wyman St.

We hope you found time to relax and recharge this summer and that the September transition has been easy on you. We also hope you’ll find time to attend our first meeting of the 2022-2023 school year. We’ll be joined by Assistant Superintendent for Student Services Maureen Ryan.

In an effort to keep our monthly meetings as accessible as possible, we plan to continue to meet virtually and on alternating nights of the week to start the 2022-2023 school year. However, for our first meeting with Ms. Ryan, we are opting for an in-person meeting. As always, you can reach out to us with feedback, questions, or concerns at wps.SEPAC@gmail.com.

IEP Improvement Project

In June, The Federation for Children with Special Needs kicked off what will be a months-long process to improve the current IEP form by replacing it with a much more useful and user-friendly document. You can view the initial draft of the new IEP form below. FCSN is soliciting your feedback as well; that form is here.

Volunteer With Us!

The Woburn SEPAC is looking for help in the following areas:

- School Liaisons
- Fundraisers
- Grant Writers

If you have a connection to your kiddo’s school and would be willing to liaise with your Principal and PTO to help spread SEPAC awareness and information, we can use your help!

We’re constantly in the process of brainstorming speakers and workshops and can always use additional funds. Are you a gifted grant writer, or someone with connections to the financial industry? We can use your help!
