Become a Surrogate Parent
When the parents of a child with disabilities are involved and informed, they are an extra assurance that the student will receive needed educational services. But...some students with disabilities don’t have parents to represent them.
Westlake City Schools is seeking representatives from each of our buildings to serve as surrogate parents. If you have already volunteered for this, we thank you, but we'd like to give others the opportunity to make a difference in a student's educational career. If this is something you are interested in.
