Volunteers are needed to oversee the educational programmingÂ of students receiving special education services. These individualsÂ are needed when the childâ€™s parents cannot be located or are unavailable.
Under Federal Law, these volunteers are considered â€œsurrogate parentsâ€Â of these students. As a surrogate parent, you will work with the schoolÂ to ensure that the childâ€™s educational programming is appropriate and his orÂ her educational rights are protected.
BLaST IU#17 will be offering an overview program for potential surrogateÂ parents. These overview programs will be held at the BLaST office located in Williamsport.
If interested in volunteering your time, please contact Diane Guiser at our Williamsport office, 323-8561.
