Maine Surrogate Parent Program
Make a Difference Help a Child - A Volunteer Program for Children/student's with Disabilities
The Surrogate Parent Program was established to provide surrogate parents to children/students with disabilities whenever the natural parents or guardian of a child/student with a disability cannot be identified, located or when the child/student is in the custody of the State. Surrogate parents have all the rights of the natural parents for educational matters, e.g. permission for evaluation and placement, release information and request for educational hearing. The primary goal of the surrogate parent program is to ensure that all children/students with disabilities are provided with equal educational opportunities.
