  • Encourage a partnership between the families of special needs children and the Quabbin Regional School District and, in doing so, improve the opportunities and education of special needs children.
  • Promote and support an educational environment where each child is encouraged and provided with opportunities to attain their fullest potential.

Helpful Information & Links for Families:

Information from the Bureau of Special Education Appeals:  Often families and school districts are able to work collaboratively and develop IEPs and 504s to meet the needs of their students; however when they reach an impasse, it can be frustrating, upsetting, and sometimes leave the parties wondering how to move forward. The BSEA Mediators/Facilitators aim to be both accessible and approachable and we are now offering monthly Informational Zoom sessions. The sessions are free and open to ANYONE who wants to learn more about our services; this includes parents, students, school districts, family support folks, attorneys, advocates, anyone wanting to know more about BSEA Mediation and Facilitation.
