Special Education Parent Advisory Committee

    • What is SEPAC? 

      • We are parents of special education students in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District.
      • We are dedicated to working with school staff, educators, administrators, and each other to enhance the learning experiences of our children.



      It is the purpose of SEPAC to develop a positive and knowledgeable partnership between the parents and caregivers of children with exceptional needs and the professionals who serve them, by providing resources through support, training and community awareness programs.

      • To develop communication channels between individuals with exceptional needs and/or their parents or guardians, school district administrators, and professional staff.
      • To make available a support system by which individuals with exceptional needs and/or their parents or guardians and the professionals who serve them may express their needs and concerns for their children's educational progress by providing a method of directing the concerned individual to the appropriate person.
      • To provide members with an annual survey to determine the areas of need. The information will be used by the Executive Committee in recommending annual priorities.
      • To assist in parent education and to function as a support group for students and/or parents or guardians of students with exceptional needs, and the professionals who serve them by conducting information programs on an individual or group basis, and maintaining a communication network.
