Welcome to Bozeman Area SEPTA!
Bozeman Area SEPTA (Special Education Parent Teacher Association) is a coalition of families, teachers, administrators, and other advocates united in the effort to promote quality education and services for individuals with special needs and their families. The group was formed on April 7, 2008, as the first district-wide Special Education PTA in the Bozeman School District No. 7 and neighboring schools in the Bozeman area. SEPTA provides a forum enabling parents, teachers and experts in the field of Special Education to share their knowledge and experience.
Our MISSION is to network, educate, and provide a unified voice for the rights of our children to quality education and services.
We meet once in September to have a back to school potluck at the Dinosaur Park, once in January to have a fun tour and activity for our families at the Museum of the Rockies, and we have our day-long SEPTA Expo in April. Our expo offers break-out sessions on various topics that affect the special needs community, a keynote speech by the Director of Special Ed, free childcare, free breakfast and lunch, and a resource fair. Please join us for any of these events.
Bozeman Area SEPTA maintains the Gallatin Valley Resource Guide for Parents of Children with Disabilities, which contains over 250 resources for parents, 95 of which are unique to Bozeman and Belgrade.
Bozeman Area SEPTA is a valuable link between home and school, providing both with important information benefiting our children. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in children with special education needs and in how special needs can benefit the entire learning community. A SEPTA Membership Form can be found at the bottom of this page under the "SEPTA Monthly Flyers & Downloadable Docs" section.
