      Free Training: Become a Special Education Decision Maker - Springfield (Indian Orchard)

      The Recruitment, Training and Support Center (RTSC) will host a free orientation training for volunteers willing to serve as a special education decision-maker for a student in DCF care whose parents are unavailable or unable to do so.  In Massachusetts, those children depend on Special Education Surrogate Parents (SESPs) to protect their legal right to a free and appropriate education.  Once appointed these volunteers have the full legal authority of a parent or legal guardian to attend special education related Team meetings, approve or reject IEPs, and, if necessary, file a complaint or appeal.

      Join us at this free training session where you will learn about the role of an SESP, how complex  trauma can impact learning, and how to incorporate the appropriate supports into the IEP. Registration is required. Contact us for more information or to register at irego@fcsn.org ,  (617) 399-8342 or www.fcsn.org/rtsc

      Cost: Free -
