Arlington Central School District Special Education Parent Teacher Association

Arlington Central School District Special Education PTA (ACSD SEPTA) is a non-profit organization and local chapter of the New York State PTA and the National PTA. Our goal is to bring parents, teachers, students, administrators, and community members together to promote the best education solutions for our community’s children with special education needs, from ages 3 to 21.

SEPTA is open to all educators, parents and community members that might be interested in attending their meetings, support groups and/or presentations.

They are a source of support and information for all in the community and welcome you and any others interested in attending.
