    SEPAC Special Education Parent & Professional Advisory Council 

    The Special Education Parent and Professional Advisory Council (SEPPAC) is a group of parents and staff whose purpose is to share information and advise the District on behalf of students receiving special education services. The Council welcomes members who represent all schools and programs in the Mounds View School District.

    • When-Sep 27 from 6:45–8:15 p.m.
    • Where-Mounds View Public Schools District Center at 4570 Victoria Street N, Shoreview 

    Bev Zelinski, director of student services at Mounds View Public Schools, will provide an overview of District special education services. After this short presentation, the SEPPAC co-chairs will lead a parent-to-parent discussion group. Discussion will include how parents can help each other navigate the system and advocate for their child. This is a great opportunity to connect with other parents who also have children receiving special education services within Mounds View Public Schools.
