Special Education Parent Advisory Councils are state mandated advisory groups

The Northborough/Southborough Parent Advisory Council (NSPAC) is a volunteer organization which serves approximately 700 families in the school district.

We provide:

  • ongoing educational programs on a variety of topics based on feedback from members.
  • support, problem solving, and act as a conduit to Student Support Services for our members.
  • network of individuals to help families navigate the complicated and often confusing world of special education, social services, medical care and community inclusion.
  • partnership opportunities with other SEPACs to expand our members' benefits.
  • an annual celebration for district staff and community members who "Go the Distance" for Special Education students and their families every day.
Our membership is open to parents and guardians of children who have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), 504s or anyone interested in special education within the district.

Volunteers Needed for Understanding Our Differences Program 

We will be working with the district to present an updated Understanding Our Differences Program for all 4th and 5th graders in the fall.  This program will help to teach empathy, kindness and understanding of disabilities. In order for this program to be successfully presented to the students, we will need volunteers at each elementary school. More information coming soon.
