The Board of Education recognizes the rights of the parent/guardian to be fully informed of all information relevant to the identification, or change in identification, evaluation and educational placement of al child with a disability.

All due process procedures for parents/guardians and children in the Commissioner’s Regulations shall be observed by the School District.

Surrogate Parents

In the event that no parent or guardian for a child with a disability can be identified or after reasonable efforts, the whereabouts of the parent or guardian cannot be determined, or the child with a disability is a ward of the state, the Board shall assign and individual to act as a surrogate for the parents or guardians. 

The person selected as a surrogate shall have no interest that conflicts with the interest of the child he/she represents, and shall have knowledge and skills that insure adequate representation of the child.  

It is the duty of the School District to determine whether a child needs a surrogate parent and to assign a surrogate parent in the manner permitted under New York State Law.
