  • Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG)
    What is a Special Education Parent Advisory Group? A Special Education Parent Advisory Group, or SEPAG (sea-pag), is a state-mandated, district-level, parent-driven group charged with providing input to the local school district on system-level challenges in special education and related services.
    The state of New Jersey, in the New Jersey Administrative Code 6A: 13-1.2(h), mandates that all public school districts have a SEPAG: "Each board of education shall ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place in the district to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities."
    The regulation allows parents and school district leaders to create and run an advisory group that meets local needs. SEPAG requirements open the door to collaboration that can make a difference. A SEPAG should be structured to benefit all students with disabilities, not just a single group of students, or a single issue. The more inclusive a SEPAG is, the more opportunities there are to achieve positive outcomes.
