WESTFIELD — The Special Education Parent Advisory Council for Westfield Public Schools will hold its first monthly meeting of the year on Sept. 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria of Westfield Technical Academy, 33 Smith Ave.

The meeting will be a meet and greet, and an opportunity for families to meet SEPAC parent leaders and learn more about their work, as well as to meet special education administrators and service providers and to ask questions.

Special Education Administrator Debra Ecker said she will be there along with the special education supervisor in the elementary, middle and high schools, and Jamie O’Neill, the new lead manager of autism and behavioral services.

“SEPAC and the special education department work very closely together, and we thought this would be a nice opportunity for parents to come in, learn what SEPAC is all about, and to meet the special education team,” Ecker said. She said both the department and SEPAC will have information there, and will be happy to answer questions.

Childcare will be provided. For more information, contact SEPAC at [email protected].
