Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Have you considered serving as a surrogate parent for a school district? You may be wondering, what is a surrogate parent? A surrogate parent represents a student with disabilities in all special education matters relating to the identification, evaluation, educational placement and provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to the child. For more information on surrogate parenting check out this short presentation on InspirED: Surrogate Parent OCALI | Surrogate Parent for a Child with a Disability.
If you decide to serve, please complete the training at https://ohiosurrogateparent.org/.
Video recordings of our Family Engagement sessions are now available on our website and are a great opportunity for you to share information with families of students with disabilities.
