April 28, 2:00-5:00 PM - #UDBetterTogether Day
The School District of Upper Dublin is working with our community partners to hear, honor, and celebrate the power of community! The theme of the day is ApplaUD: Celebrating Everything Upper Dublin. As an outgrowth of the School District's Excellence and Equity Steering Committee, it's a time for us to gather as a community to show how we are #UDBetterTogether.
We will kick off with an opening ceremony and community engagement in the UDHS Cafeteria from 2:00-3:00 PM -- where we will hear diverse perspectives and have the opportunity for you to share your story. At 3:00 PM we will celebrate with fun for people of all ages -- community resource tables, music, food vendors and more! So come out, stop by, and enjoy #UDBetterTogether Day! Stop by SPEAC's table and say hi!
Sometimes we all need a little support! If you are new or experienced within the district and want to connect with another parent who has a child with similar needs to yours, we can help!

SPEAC is a district wide organization. Our members represent children with special needs throughout all the schools within the Upper Dublin School District.
The Special Education Advisory Council of Upper Dublin is a non-profit parent organization. We support learning for all students and seek to ensure the needs of special education students are continuously identified and effectively addressed so that these students are given the opportunity to participate fully in the general education classroom. We provide education, information, support and resources to parents, teachers, school administration, and the community to increase awareness of the needs of these students.
In addition to our monthly speaker series, we host family events and informal get togethers for an opportunity to meet each other and discuss current issues.
Our organization is comprised of committees that focus on specific areas. If you are interested in starting a committee please contact us.
We are parents who want to help ensure the needs of special education students are addressed in the District.
