Our SEPAG Mission: 
The Englewood Cliffs’ SEPAG is a state-mandated, parent led organization which works collaboratively with our school district leadership.   We offer the opportunity to raise questions, voice concerns and provide direct input relating to system-level challenges in an effort to ensure the delivery of appropriate services for children who are different learners.  Our goal is to improve outcomes for all children receiving special education services and support.
 
 Function of SEPAG:
  • To provide direct input on the policies, programs, and practices that affect services and supports for students who are different learners.

  • To increase the involvement of families of children with special needs in school activities.

  • To advise on issues that affect the education, health, and safety of students with special needs.

 
A SEPAG is NOT:
  • An advocacy group, which focuses on upholding rights for children and advocating for change from outside the system;

  • A limited campaign dedicated to addressing a single issue or immediate concern; 

  • A Special Education PTA or Educational Foundation, which might plan carnivals, classroom activities, dances, fundraisers, or other events.
