About Us

SEPAC is an acronym that stands for Special Education Parent Advisory Council.


Since 1986, Massachusetts special education law (Chapter 71B of the Massachusetts General Laws) requires all public school districts to maintain a Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC).

Go Team

The Haverhill SEPAC is comprised of individuals involved in, or concerned with, the education of students with disabilities. Membership is open to parents and guardians of students with disabilities, teachers, administrators, individuals with disabilities, and interested members of the community. Haverhill SEPAC is an all-volunteer organization. 

In the Haverhill Public School system, there are more than 1,700 individuals on individual education plans (IEPs) and 504  plans (as of 2018-19). Whether your child is already receiving support from the Haverhill Public Schools or you are trying to determine if your child needs services, Haverhill SEPAC is an asset to parents and guardians navigating the complex world of special education.

We meet to learn more about special education programs, issues, policies, regulations, and resources.
