EPLAC Welcomes All to First Meeting Sept. 27th


The East Providence Local Advisory Committee For Special Education (EPLAC) is hosting the first meeting of the school year. All are welcome to come and meet the committee, the EP school personnel, and to let us know how the first few weeks of school have gone for you.
This year we will be talking about paths to smooth transitions for special needs students, among many other topics, through meetings and workshops, that pertain to Special Education here in East Providence.

EPLAC is a committee comprised of parents of children with disabilities along with administrators, teachers and others with a concern for our children. We meet throughout the school year to share information and concerns of educational issues. Our first meeting of the 2017-18 school year is on Wednesday September 27th, 6:30pm at Martin Middle School Library, 111 Brown St. East Providence.

Our committee’s goals are:
• To enable parents of special education children to be effective in their advocacy efforts
• To jointly advocate for all children with special needs
• To aid the East Providence School Department in its efforts to provide quality education for all students
• To provide each other with a strong network of support
Meetings are the last Wednesday of each month from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Martin Middle School Library.
There is no need to be a member to attend EPLAC meetings, however if you are interested in using your talents and strengths to make a difference, please let us know!
