SEPAC Membership

The Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) is made up of parents and guardians of children with disabilities. We are appointed by and represent local school districts in Marquette and Alger Counties. Care is given to represent the various disabilities of children. We encourage representation from each school district. If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact your district's special education coordinator.
