  • Participate in the planning, development, and evaluation of the school district's special education programs
  • Increase community awareness to encourage understanding, acceptance, and inclusion of children with special needs
  • Establish a network of support between parents with similar needs

ECPAC Meetings:

  • All meetings are open to the public.
  • The first 30 minutes will be available for public comment. To sign up, please submit information at by noon, one day before the meeting.
