What is WellesleyPAC

The Wellesley Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of parents, and caregivers of children with disabilities from pre-school to age 22 attending Wellesley public schools and private school settings. The purpose of the PAC is to support families whose children receive special education services. We work with the Wellesley Public School Administrators and town committees to help kids on Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) have a positive learning experience. Wellesley PAC provides general information through meetings, lectures and online resources. We support each other by offering our ideas and guidance.

Who belongs to the WellesleyPAC

Parents and caregivers just like you. Membership and meetings are open to all parents or caregivers of students with special needs in Wellesley, as well as all other interested parties. Even though your child is like no other, there are hundreds of people in Wellesley who are going through the Wellesley special education process in much the same way that you might be going through it. We are always learning from each other. Student success is directly linked to parental engagement in schools. Please join us!
