Picture is that of a light wood desk. There are work-related objects scattered on the desk. From left to right: headphones, 2 notebooks, a keyboard with a pair of glasses resting on it, a silver pen, a yellow cup of coffee w/saucer, a computer mouse. In the center is blue text saying "Advocacy News." The SEPTA logo is in the bottom right corner.

Advocacy Update: Proposed Resolutions

Fairfax County SEPTA has written two resolutions for its membership to consider for adoption - one on Restraint & Seclusion, and one that focuses on Special Education Funding, Services and Training. Please see our website (link below) for the full text of the proposed resolutions!

Fairfax County SEPTA has written two resolutions for its membership to consider for adoption at the January 19, 2021 General Membership Meeting. One is a resolution on restraint and seclusion, while the other focuses on special education funding, services and training.


Resolutions, unlike Position Statements, must be voted on by the general membership. We will hold that vote at the opening of the meeting on January 19, 2021. Only current SEPTA members may cast a vote. If you are unsure of your membership status, please e-mail our Vice President, Amanda Campbell, at vicepresident@fairfaxcountysepta.org. If you would like to join, please see our membership form at fcsepta.ptboard.com. Use School Code SN75N5 if asked.

Please see the documents linked below for the full text of each resolution. There are 4 documents in total – two per resolution. The first document of each is the resolution alone, the other includes the rationale/references/sources used to create the resolution. If you have any questions in advance of the meeting, please email our Advocacy Chair, Diane Cooper Gould, at advocacy@fairfaxcountysepta.org.
