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 to the Upper Dublin School District 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.
