The Fairfield SEPTA is a group of parents, teachers, community professionals and community supporters striving to improve the education and social interactions and recreational opportunities of children with special needs. Begun in 1999, the Fairfield SEPTA grew out of a parent support group at the Early Childhood Center, with 44 members. As of this fall, SEPTA has 200+ members. SEPTA provides the parents/ guardians/ caretakers of special education students with support and resources. SEPTA, however, does not and will not provide legal advice or individual advocacy.
Our purpose is to address broader issues that impact all children with special needs in our community. Fairfield SEPTA's overall message and approach as a PTA is to work in a positive and collaborative manner with our school system and our community.
