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.

Due to Covid-related restrictions, all meetings are currently being held via Zoom. We often feature speakers at our meetings and presentations.

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 Support

Our supportive community is open to all! Join us for a cup of tea or coffee! Contact us at septarinfo@gmail.com for more information.
