Free Training to become a Special Education Surrogate Parent
Are you interested in supporting children in your community? You can help by volunteering to become a Special Education Surrogate Parent (SESP) for a student in the custody of DCF whose parents are unknown or unavailable.  In Massachusetts, these children depend on SESPs to protect their legal right to a free and appropriate education. SESPs serve as appointed decision-makers  that have the legal authority of a parent or legal guardian to attend special education team meetings, approve or reject IEPs, and, if necessary, file a complaint or appeal. On average an SESP spends about 20-30 hours a year volunteering their time.  Join us at this free training sessions where you will learn about the role of an SESP, how traumatic experiences can impact learning, and how to incorporate the appropriate supports into the IEP.  Registration is required. Contact Hannah at hstallkamp@fcsn.org or (617) 399 8342 to sign up for orientation or to request more information about the program. You can also register online http://fcsn.org/rtsc/events/  Visit our website for additional trainings opportunities near you!
