What is the Newton SEPAC?
Does your child have an IEP or 504 plan? Are you interested in obtaining an evaluation or support services for your child? Then you need to know about the Newton Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) at newtonsepac.org.
We are a volunteer organization of parents and guardians of children with special needs from preschool through high school. We work directly with Newton’s district and school administration regarding our children’s special education through our school-based liaisons, regular meetings with the Assistant Superintendent of Student Services, and by attending and reporting at Newton School Committee meetings. The SEPAC Board can be contacted directly via Email at info@NewtonSEPAC.org.
We hold monthly Open Board Meetings (https://newtonpac.org/meetings/) that are open to all families and interested community members in Newton. Meetings are held in two formats: virtually and in-person (see website for dates, room locations, Zoom links and agendas). We also run an Online Forum where parents can ask each other about special education programs, issues, policies and resources both within and outside of the public school system.
Members of our “Newton SEPAC” Google Group can post questions or concerns about anything related to your child with special needs. We also use this group to publicize local/online presentations and conferences as well as DESE policy updates.
In addition, we reach families through our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/newtonsepac
Newton Special Education Parents – SEPAC. Upcoming meetings and presentations, policy updates, and questions are posted here often.
SEPAC at Memorial Spaulding Elementary School
Every K-12 public school in Newton has at least one parent volunteer who serves as the SEPAC Liaison. Anyone in the school community can contact their SEPAC Liaison(s) directly for information about the SEPAC, special education services at a particular school, or with any questions or concerns about a student. The SEPAC Liaison(s) for Memorial Spaulding can be contacted via Email at MemorialSpaulding@newtonsepac.org, and contact information for other schools can be found on the Newton SEPAC website.
Our school community is lucky to have dedicated and experienced Memorial Spaulding Special Education Staff supporting our children with IEPs/504s every day. For questions about specific services or providers, please contact your child’s teacher and/or their IEP team coordinator.

What is the Blue Zone?
The City of Newton has created designated drop-off and pick-up areas at many schools in the city. These school drop off and pick up zones are commonly referred to as “Blue-Zones”. “Blue Zones” are designed to allow for improved traffic flow and safer drop-off and pick-up of students. “Blue Zones” are in effect Monday through Friday when school is in session.
Memorial-Spaulding Blue Zone
This is the blue curb on Brookline Street in front of the school. This area is for drop and go only - drivers may not exit the car. Students should get out on the passenger side. Please observe the rules! For more information check out the link: https://www.newton.k12.ma.us/Page/809
