Stratford Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA) is a district-wide PTA (pre-K through High School) which focuses on special education issues and topics. We are organized under the Connecticut PTA, a part of the National PTA. Membership is distinct from your school's PTA. We value your support, and encourage you support your school PTA as well. Membership dues are $10 per person per school year. Membership forms can be downloaded here: Membership Form and turned in at any monthly meeting or mailed to the address listed on the form.
