    - Become a Special Education Surrogate Parent - Free New Bedford Training

    You can help by volunteering to become a Special Education Surrogate Parent (SESP) for a student, in the custody of the state, 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 host 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 http://www.fcsn.org/rtsc/ to view our current training schedule for other opportunities.
     

    Registration is required. You can register online at http://fcsn.org/rtsc/events/new-bedford-sesp-orientation-may-2016/ or contact Danielle Hardin at 617-399-8342 or dhardin@fcsn.org. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR CONTACT PHONE NUMBER.

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
