This is an informative training that you must take if you would like to be able to hold the educational rights for your assigned CASA child. All CASAs can advocate for their child educationally, but it is the person who holds education rights who has the primary authority to make educational decisions and sign documents.
We encourage all advocates to take this training. (You may take this training yet decide not to hold educational rights if asked – no obligation!)
