August 2018

Dear Families and staff,

                                               I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is John Phelan and I am honored to be the new Director of Special Education for the East Bridgewater Public Schools.  As a parent and educator, I am committed to supporting every student in developing his or her academic, social or personal skills to the greatest extent possible.  I look forward to working with the staff, students and families in meeting the needs of all students regardless of ability. The student remains at the center of all services and programs that we endeavor to provide. 

 I would like to encourage you to attend a SEPAC meeting this year.  The SEPAC provides invaluable insight from the parental perspective to our school district which helps us improve the quality of programming for all students.  I have already had the pleasure of meeting with the SEPAC committee members and feel that further conversations will support all students within our schools. Additionally, the SEPAC will support the work of the Special Education Department.  

If questions arise about your student’s Special Education programming, please refer to the identified contact person based upon grade level;
