Special Education Parent Faculty Club (SEPFC)



What is the SEPFC?


SEPFC is the parent/faculty club in the Deer Park School District which represents children with special needs in all grades, in all of our schools whether they are educationally placed inside or outside of the school district.


SEPFC's purpose is to support, strengthen and promote a greater awareness of the special educational needs of our Deer Park children.


SEPFC is a team effort that has parents, teachers and administrators working together for the benefit of all students with special needs.


Our motto is to INFORM, ADVOCATE and COMMUNICATE!
