Who We Are

Comprised of district professionals and parents, Newark SEPAC is an advocacy organization for Newark Public School students identified with special needs. We provide information, educational opportunities, resources and support to families and professionals striving to achieve the maximum benefit for all children within our community.


We provide a platform where parents and district representatives meet to identify and discuss systemic issues that affect children with special needs within the Newark Public School district and to propose solutions for them.
