What is an Education Advocate?
An Education Advocate (EA) acts as a liaison between families and the school district. An EA facilitates a collaborative working relationship, assisting with resolving conflict if necessary. An EA will also coordinate/attend meetings as needed. The goal of the EA is to find solutions and develop a plan to meet the needs of the student. An EA is also available to provide training and supports to help you better understand the process, education regulations, and available services. Navigating the system can be challenging.
