FRIENDS OF HOPKINTON SEPAC NAVIGATOR SCHOLARSHIP
100% of the funds raised by our Boston Marathon runner benefit Hopkinton students and the Hopkinton student community through the Navigator scholarship offered to High School Senior students in Hopkinton by the Friends of Hopkinton SEPAC. The Navigator scholarship is open to students formerly or currently receiving services through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan, and is granted each year to deserving students who are continuing their education by either attending college or transitioning to adult services and schools.
Additional funds raised by Friends of Hopkinton SEPAC through other means are used to continue to benefit our community with additional programming and opportunities including:
Educational Workshops - Workshops on educational and learning differences for parents, teachers, and students.
Guest Speakers and Free events open to the public on various topics related to learning differences, differing abilities, and mental health.
"Inspiration" Awards - Awards recognizing both teachers and teaching paraprofessionals in special education in Hopkinton who have gone over and above to inspire, support and motivate children
What is a SEPAC?
SEPAC stands for Special Education Parent Advisory Council.
The SEPAC is comprised of individuals involved in, or concerned with, the education of students with disabilities. Membership is open to parents of students with disabilities and differing abilities, teachers, administrators, individuals with disabilities, and members of the community.
How Can SEPAC Help?
When a child struggles in school, parents may feel frustrated, helpless, angry, sad, and alone. Hopkinton SEPAC welcomes you into a network of supportive parents who have had similar experiences. SEPAC members provide information and support to help other parents feel empowered and optimistic about their child’s education.
