Surrogate Parent Training
A Surrogate Parent is an individual who is appointed by the school district of residence or a court to represent a student with a disability (1) whose parent cannot be identified or located, (2) who is a ward of the state, or (3) who is an unaccompanied homeless youth.
A five-hour comprehensive training is provided by State Support Teams (SSTs). Once completed, participants will be certified as surrogate parents, enabling them to represent a child in matters relating to the identification, evaluation and educational placement, and the provision of free and appropriate public education.
