Our Commitment

CCLCS is committed to providing an excellent educational experience for all students. Our Special Education Department works closely with families and sending districts to insure incoming students with disabilities receive programming appropriate to their needs. CCLCS is required to follow the same state and federal special education laws and regulations as other public schools. 


The services offered at CCLCS are similar to those offered by traditional public schools. 

They include, but are not limited to:

  • special education teachers and assistants

  • a speech/language therapist

  • an occupational therapist

  • a school psychologist

  • a literacy instructor

  • a full-time school nurse. 

We also have full-time staffed learning labs each grade level. They are equipped with the latest technology.


What is a SEPAC? 

Special Education Parent Advisory Councils (SEPACs) are a part of every Massachusetts school districts’ special education program. SEPACs have tremendous potential to have a positive impact on special education programs in a school. SEPACs can provide invaluable resources for parents and add an important voice to a school’s dialogue and decision-making. 

Who may join?

The CCLCS SEPAC is open to all parents/guardians of students with special needs and any other interested parties. 


What does the CCLCS SEPAC do? 

  • We help the school organize expert speakers, workshops and other information sessions for both parents and staff. 

  • We act as an informal support network for parents and families. In the past, SEPAC members have held monthly early morning coffee discussions. 

  • We meet with CCLCS school leaders to provide feedback and input toward continual improvement of special education programs and services.
