The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has answered some key questions about getting IEPs ready to meet students’ needs as schools respond to the way educational services are provided.

MPACT Mentor Volunteer Program
What is an MPACT Mentor Volunteer?

Mentors are trained volunteers who, upon request, provide support to families of children with disabilities throughout the special education process. A mentor does not represent or speak for a parent or family member, but a mentor does help empower an individual to become a strong educational advocate for his or her child. MPACT mentors are screened and receive training and supervision from MPACT staff.
