A Glimpse into the Special Education Parent Advisory Group
and Friends of Different Learners
All families have a shared and vested interest in our educational programs, especially
families who have a child with an identified learning disability or a different learning style.
Parent-led committees offer parents the opportunity to work together to make a difference.
The Special Education Parent Advisory Group and Friends of Different Learners
welcome ALL parents of students
how to best support their child during their academic career.
Neither committee requires fundraising or a budget to make an impact – just YOU.
Special Education Parent Advisory Group (SEPAG)
Our mission is to facilitate communication between students, parents, community members, Special Services administrators, and the Board of Education, for the purpose of improving the quality of district-wide special education policies, programs, and practices.
SEPAGs are required for all school districts in New Jersey. New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:14-1.2(h) states that: “Each board of education shall ensure that a special education parent advisory group is in place in the district to provide input to the district on issues concerning students with disabilities.”
The SEPAG offers the opportunity to raise questions, to voice your concerns, and to have direct input to Special Services administrators and the Board of Education.
Friends of Different Learners (FDL)
Our mission is to enhance the education of children who have different learning styles, bringing families together to share ideas, information, and resources, creating an in-district parent support network. Hazlet’s FDL also collaborates with neighboring districts throughout the school year to offer free parent education seminars led by topic-expert speakers and monthly parent support group meetings.
