Educational Surrogate Lunch and Learn

A group of eight young students
Thursday, September 17, 2020

Leon County Schools and the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program are hosting a continuing education event of interest to volunteer guardians ad litem who are not yet educational surrogates.

Join us on Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM for Educational Surrogate Lunch and Learn.

Educational surrogates act as advocates for a child who requires exceptional student education (ESE) services. Responsibilities include making informed decisions about the child's educational needs, attending meetings and monitoring the child's progress.

Successful completion of the training and certification as an educational surrogate will qualify guardians ad litem to provide additional advocacy to children receiving ESE services and who have an individualized education program (IEP) at school.

The session will be conducted by Child Find and Parent Services Specialist Mary Petrandis with Leon County Schools. Participants may receive one (1) hour of continuing education credit. Afterward, report your hours using Optima.

The training is free. You can download the print flyer and register with the event contact below.
