EPLAC – Special Education

East Providence Local Advisory Committee for Special Education

The East Providence Local Advisory Committee For Special Education (EPLAC) is a committee comprised of parents of children with disabilities along with administrators, teachers and others with a concern for our children. We meet throughout the school year to share information and concerns of educational issues.

Our committees’ goals are:
     • To enable parents of special education children to be effective in their advocacy efforts. 
     • To jointly advocate for all children with special needs.
     • To aid the East Providence School Department in its efforts to provide quality education for all students. 
     • To provide each other with a strong network of support. 

Membership Drive is now taking place!  Become a member of our team! 

Meetings are the last Wednesday of the month from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the Martin Middle School library.
