CHPS Seeks Parents to Join Special Education Parent Advisory Group

The Cherry Hill Public Schools seeks parents to become part of the new Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG), which will provide opportunities for parents and community members to offer input to the District on critical issues relating to students with disabilities. SEPAG will be composed of one parent/guardian from each of the 19 schools in the District, as well as a parent/guardian representing out-of-district students. As directed by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE), the SEPAG is not an advocacy group or a PTA/PTO. The NJDOE's guide to developing and conducting a SEPAG may be found on their web site. A flyer with details about the CHPS SEPAG is available online. Additionally, a letter regarding the group formation process as well the interest form to be considered for the group are available online. The deadline for submission is October 12, 2018.
