Parent Mentor for Special Education:

The Parent Mentor Program was begun in 2002 by the Georgia Department of Education Division of Special Education Services and Supports.  Parent Mentors are professional staff members of the school system who know first-hand the triumphs and disappointments of raising a child with learning, emotional and or physical challenges.

Parent Mentors help build the bridge between families and educators to provide insight into one another's worlds.  Along with assisting parents , parent mentors collaborate with special education directors and staff  in developing parent friendly programs.  

Lori Rose is Stephens County's Parent Mentor.  Lori may be contacted at the Stephens County High School, Front office suite 2016 or (706) 886-6825 Extension 6804.

You may contact the Stephens County Student Support/ Special Education office for more information.
