(Special Education PTA)
Northport-East Northport SEPTA is dedicated to advocate and promote special education for our children and also to support one another as parents of special needs children.
What We Do
We are the district-wide Special Education PTA for the Northport-East Northport school district. We pride ourselves in advocating for special education programs and have created and sponsor therapeutic after-school activities in our community.
As per NYS PTA, SEPTA is a unit organized for those interested in the issues of educating gifted or special needs children. In our district, we have both SEPTA and Gifted & Talented PTAs. Special education is a free appropriate education in the least restrictive environment for children who require differentiated programs and/or services beyond those usually provided by the regular school curriculum.

SEPTA Education Committee Meeting
Please join us at our first meeting for this school year:
Thursday, October 20
Location: Brosnan Building
Contact Shawne Albero, SEPTA's co-president, at 631-327-2051 for more info.
This committee was chartered last year. We are a group of SEPTA members that come together to look at programs currently in place, to research and discuss the effectiveness of these programs, and to look at programs offered by other districts. Our goal is to improve the school experience for our children. This committee meets outside of SEPTA's regular meetings. Please join us -- all are welcome!
