Join the ESE Team as a Surrogate
Parent for an Exceptional Student

There are exceptional students in our community who very much need a surrogate parent. A surrogate parent is not someone who takes care of a child, like an adoptive parent or a foster parent. A surrogate parent is not financially responsible for the child. A surrogate parent is a person who acts in the educational interests of an exceptional student in order to make sure that the student receives an appropriate education, as required by law.
