Welcome to Seem Collaborative
Let me first say how pleased I am that you have chosen to visit us. I am also pleased to now share with you some information about SEEM.
The purpose of the SEEM Collaborative, governed by a Board of Directors, is to assist member public school districts to build capacity at the local level in order that appropriate programs and services may be available to all students in their local communities. If this turns out not to be possible at the local level, SEEM Collaborative will then provide special education programs and services as required. It is also the purpose of the collaborative to enhance the practice of collaboration among its member districts through education and information sharing, responsive consultation and planning, and direct program support. As an extension of its member districts, the Collaborative has a responsibility to educate both collaborative and member district staff through highly focused training programs and professional development activities that are in the forefront of research-based best practice. At the same time,the Collaborative must be prepared to respond to unique and specific program needs in the district by providing on-site consultation, demonstration of best practices, and remaining available to to ensure transference to the local instructional team.
The Collaborative's responses to the needs that arise must be practical but also morally appropriate. Some students with disabilities have existed at the margins of systems but when we choose to look at the margins we bring those who have been excluded into the center and this fosters fairness and innovation, which brings us back to the purpose of the Collaborative - to educate, to collaborate, to train, and to create.
Your interest in the SEEM Collaborative is appreciated.

School Closing Due to Inclement Weather:
SEEM programs follow the public school system of the town in which the program is located for delays and cancellations due to inclement weather. For example: If your child attends The TLC program at the Beebe School and Melrose Public Schools are closed for the day, then the Beebe School is closed for the day.
If you are questioning a delay or cancellation you should look for an announcement made by the following public school district.
The announcement may be found on the local news channels or can be heard on WBZ 1030
