Parent Information and Resources

Hightstown-East Windsor Parent Advisory Group

The HEWSEPAG is a solution-oriented parent advisory group that represents students who receive special education services through the Hightstown East Windsor School District. We offer advice, provide information, and make available resources to parents of children with special educational needs. HEWSEPAG is a supportive, informative, and
encouraging forum for you and your child. It is our goal to empower you, the parent, to become an effective advocate for your child.
HEWSEPAG provides direct input to our district leaders regarding the policies, programs and services impacting the special education community. The group collaborates with district staff, administrators, and Board of Education members to facilitate engagement and open transparent communication in order to create the best possible outcomes
for all learners.

ADA/504 Accommodations

For students with disabilities for whom special education is not required but accommodations are needed, a "504 Accommodation Plan" can be developed by the 504 committee. Parents and guardians can obtain additional information by contacting the School Principal or Director of Student Services at 609-443-7717, ext. 2012.
