Educational Surrogate Parent Training
What is a Surrogate Parent?
Special Education Surrogate Parents make educational decisions for students whose parents are unavailable due to circumstances such as; the student is a ward of the court or in foster care. The Surrogate Parent may include but are not limited to meeting with their assigned student or observe them in the classroom, receive all progress reports and report cards, and attend IEP meetings as an acting surrogate parent.

The mission of the East Orange Special Education Services is to ensure that every East Orange student receiving special education services (including, but not limited to those who are at-risk, a ward of the state, or in foster care) receives the educational supports they need to succeed. We strive to meet this goal by recruiting volunteers from across New Jersey and providing them with the training and support they need to be effective Special Education Surrogate Parents (SESPs). If you want to serve East Orange students by becoming an SESP, please fill out the registration form below.
