About UsNorthborough Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council Northboro Southboro Special Education Parent Advisory Council SPEDPAC NSPAC
NSPAC is a volunteer organization serving as a resource to parents and guardians of children in the Northborough/Southborough district with special needs and learning differences. 
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 Northborough/ Southborough School District.  
We work closely with the district administration and educators to identify areas of need and act in an advisory role to the school committee and the administration.
Why We Have a PAC
Special Education Parent Advisory Councils are state mandated advisory groups. Read the state regulations here.
What We Do
We are a positive and solution oriented group who play an integral role in the programs, research, and solutions that are provided to the children and families who benefit from differentiated learning.
  • Present monthly educational programs on a variety of topics.
  • Provide a broad range of information, contacts, and networking opportunities.
  • Share resource information (books, programs, evaluators, etc).
  • Facilitate connections with other parents dealing with similar issues and professionals who can help.
