Minuteman faculty and staff seek to maintain open lines of communication with all of our parents.
Two great resources to facilitate communication are the MPA and SEPAC.
Minuteman Parent Association
The Minuteman Parent Association (MPA), a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, is a school-wide volunteer organization of parents/guardians whose goal is to enrich the educational and extracurricular experience of our students.
All parents/guardians are welcome to attend monthly meetings that are usually held on the second Wednesday or Thursday of every month in the Training Room/Room 2N11. These meetings allow us to exchange ideas and concerns while building a more dynamic and supportive school community. Click to view the 2012-13 meeting schedule.
Parents/guardians can join MPA today by completing the 2011-12 MPA Membership Form.
Your modest annual suggested dues of $35 pays for a lot of good things. In addition to a copy of the Minuteman Student Directory and helping to provide funds to enrich students' experiences while at Minuteman, graduating seniors whose parent/guardian is a member become eligible for a scholarship or trade award sponsored by the MPA. We want every parent/guardian to be a member of the MPA and you may set your dues at a level appropriate for you. Mail your completed MPA Membership Form with your check (payable to the Minuteman Parent Association) to: Minuteman Parent Association, 758 Marrett Rd, Lexington, MA 02421. Dues are tax deductible except for the first $5.
Special Educational Advisory Council
The Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) is a school-wide organization that includes parents, teachers, and administrators. We work in partnership to promote innovative educational environments where students with disabilities have safe, healthy, challenging learning environments, with equal access to educational opportunities. SEPAC also provides parent education, support, advice and training.
We provide parent feedback, education and information to the school district administration, school committee, various educators, and Minuteman communities to ensure that students' needs under special education law / regulations and other applicable laws are being met. SEPAC can assist the School in reducing the frustrations that parents and students can experience.
