Education Advocate & Parent Rights Training – Pittsburg
There are more than 900 Kansas children and youth with disabilities whose parents are unknown, unavailable or whose parental rights have been terminated.
These children and youth need someone like you to represent them in special education matters!
The Kansas State Department of Education has contracted with Families Together, Inc. to coordinate the Education Advocate Program. Education Advocates “step into the role” of the parent in special education matters and advocate for the child/student. Advocates should be willing to assert their rights as the legal educational decision maker and effectively advocate for the student while working to build a strong school team around the student.
This training will also count as the yearly refresher training for current education advocates.
For more information, contact: Darla or Lisa or call the Topeka Center at (785) 233-4777.
Families Together is here to assist all Kansas families and transition age youth who have disabilities and/or special healthcare needs ages birth-26.
