Northborough/Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council (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.
- 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.
- Present annual ‘Go the Distance’ awards to school district staff and community members who have made a significant contribution to enhancing the life of a child with special needs. This is our most well-known and well attended district wide event. (Click here for more information)
Our biggest challenges:
- Reaching our audience.
- Finding more volunteers to help NSPAC remain a more active organization.
- No real means to do fundraising.
