Special Needs Advisory Council (SNAC)
SNAC, which is Nantucket’s state-mandated Parent Advisory Council (PAC), is now under the leadership of parents Heidi Fee and Amy Ravitz. Every school district in MA is required to have a PAC to provide a parent voice in local special education matters. Heidi and Amy have scheduled the public meetings so that the first portion will serve as a forum for information sharing and Q&A with Nancy Miller, NPS Special Services Director, or other pertinent personnel; and the second part of the meeting will be conducted as a parent support group with facilitator Amy Ravitz, who is also an advocate.
SNAC meets the third Wednesday of each month, 6:00 – 7:00 pm, followed by the parent support group, 7:00 – 8:00 pm.
For more information, please contact Heidi, 508.228.5526.
