APPOINTMENT OF SURROGATES

Appointment of Surrogates:

  • Biological parent(s) must be invited to IEP meetings unless there is a court order terminating the right to make educational decisions for a child. There is a distinction between custodial rights and educational rights. A parent's custodial rights may be removed; however, unless educational rights have specifically been revoked, the parent retains decision-making rights under IDEA. When the status of a parent's educational decision making rights are in question, a good question to pose to the social worker is, "Can the child be adopted?" If the child is adoptable, all rights of the parent have been severed. A surrogate would need to be appointed.
  • If unable to locate parent(s), a surrogate would need to be appointed.
  • A guardian ad litem may only serve as parent if he/she has been appointed by the court or meets the criteria and has been appointed as educational surrogate by the LEA.
  • Employees of state agencies involved in the education or care of the child, such as the LEA, DSS, DHHS, group home employees, and therapeutic foster parents may not be appointed as surrogates.

Please contact the EC Office for a list of approved surrogates.
