Announcements
Special Education Parent Advisory Group
The Wayne Township Schools Department of Student Support Services held its first Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG) meeting on October 30, 2013. SEPAG members serve as an advisory group liaison for the district and a parent liaison for the PTO and Wayne Special Parent Association (WSPA). This group consists of one parent volunteer from each school. This volunteer must be a parent of a student who currently receives special education under IDEA or accommodations and modifications under Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. SEPAG liaisons will assist in setting and accomplishing specific yearly goals and priorities, collaborate with central office and building administration in the development and implementation of SEPAG initiatives, attend SEPAG, PTO and WSPA meetings, refer parents with questions about special education and student support services to the appropriate resources, and support/consult with WSPA regarding questions/concerns related to WSPA stakeholders. There will be three additional meetings scheduled this school year (January, March and May) creating an opportunity for the Department of Student Support Services to gather input from a broader parent population, enhance communication, collaborate in meeting common goals, and better reflect the needs of our learning community.

In 1993, the New Jersey Departments of Education (DOE), Human Services (DHS) and Treasury began the Special Education Medicaid Initiative (SEMI). The purpose of SEMI is to recover a portion of costs for certain Medicaid covered services provided to Medicaid eligible students enrolled in participating New Jersey local education agencies (LEAs).
