The Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) sponsored a mental health awareness day for all high school students. General and special education teachers, administrators, board of education members, Child Study Team members, and guidance educational specialists created a special that included various activities involving mental health.

The program was developed in conjunction with the Bergen County Children’s Interagency Coordinating Council. Student surveys assessed the efficacy of this building-wide program, which contributed to character education and helped build a positive school climate.
