      Free Training: Become a Special Education Decision Maker - Boston

      Make a difference in the life of a student!

      Are you interested in supporting students in your community?

      You can help by volunteering to become a Special Education Surrogate Parent (SESP) for a student in state care that requires special education supports and whose parents are unknown or unavailable. These children depend on SESPs to protect their legal right to a free and appropriate education.

      SESPs serve as appointed decision makers that have the legal authority of a parent or legal guardian to attend and participate in special education team meetings, approve or reject Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and if necessary, file complaints or appeals. On average, the time commitment is only 30-40 hours a year.

      RTSC hosts FREE Orientation Trainings throughout the state where you will learn about the role of an SESP, how traumatic experiences can impact learning and how to incorporate the appropriate supports into the IEP. Register to attend this training or visit our website at to view our current training schedule for other opportunities.

      Registration is required.

      You can register online at or contact Ivone Rego at or 617-399-8342. (PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR CONTACT PHONE NUMBER.)
