2023 SEPAC Awards

Dear All,

As you may know, each year, parents, guardians, and students are able to nominate NPS and Out of District teachers and staff for a Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) Award. A SEPAC Award recognizes exceptional NPS and Out of District teachers, aides, behavior therapists, psychologists, bus drivers, crossing guards, administrators, and other staff for the role they played in a student’s special education journey this past academic year. Interested in nominating an exceptional NPS or Out of District teacher and/or staff member? The deadline for nominations is Monday, May 22nd. Here’s how the process works:

  • Submit a nomination through the nomination form
  • All celebratory nominations will be recognized
  • In early June, your nominee will receive:
    • A printed SEPAC Award delivered to their home school
    • A note with the kind words you wrote about your nominee
    • A short slideshow of anonymized nominations lifting up the good work taking place across the district
  • Each principal will receive a list of nominees from their school

Do you need to nominate everyone from your student’s team? Please only nominate the teachers and staff members who you feel have been exceptional!
