What is the MURSD SEPAC?
The MURSD Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is a group of parents and guardians of children who are supported or who are seeking special education support in the Mendon-Upton school district. Our SEPAC not only provides a support network for other parents, but a forum for open communication about special education in our district, an opportunity for collaboration with district leadership, and more. To be added to the SEPAC email list, please reach out to email@example.com. More information here: Mendon-Upton SEPAC | Mendon-Upton Regional School District (mursd.org)
