The North Attleboro Special Education Parent Advisory Council (NA SEPAC) Heroes Recognition Program has been established to honor members of the community for their outstanding service and commitment to children with special needs in North Attleborough. Heroes include North Attleborough School Department Employees – both from general and special education classrooms – educators, para-professionals, counselors, gym, art or music teachers, OTs, SLPs, PTs and other professional staff working directly with and supporting individuals with special needs.

Families of children with special needs along with other members of the community are invited to nominate that very special individual who has made a difference in their child’s life through service, education, at home support, etc. Heroes will be honored at a special reception to be held April 28 at the North Attleborough Middle School Media Center; however, in the event that we still have capacity limitations, this event will likely be hosted via Google Meet by the North Attleborough School Department. Those invited to participate in the event include award recipients’ and their families, nominators and North Attleboro SEPAC Board Members as well as members from the district’s administration and council members.
