Celebrate Inclusive Schools Week December 5 - 9


Special Education Parent Teacher Association Redwood City

SEPTAR was formed on January 25, 2007 as the first district-wide special education PTA in the Redwood City School District. We offer education workshops, enrichment programs, disability awareness events and social activities. Our mini grant program supports professional development for all educators.

SEPTAR meets on the third Thursday evening of each month. Our virtual meetings are open to the public and are centered around an informational discussion and/or presentation on a variety of topics.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in special education. You do not need to have a child in the Redwood City School District to join. Annual fees are $10.

SEPTAR members get access to the SEPTAR Google Group and Google chat. These are discussion groups for members of SEPTAR.

Community Engagement

Our supportive community is open to all! Join us at the Magical Bridge playground on the third Sunday of the month!

Contact us at (650) 517-3320 or email us at septarinfo@gmail.com for more information.
