The Parent Mentor Partnership is an initiative of the Ga.
Department of Education and participating school districts throughout
Georgia. One the requirements to be a
parent mentor is that one must have a child with a disability who is currently
in or has been in a public school setting.
As a part-time employee, Parent Mentors act as a liaison between home,
school and community.
I, Carolyn Heard, am proud to be the Parent Mentor for Exceptional
Student Education for Henry County Schools.
With over 10 years of personal and professional experience with the IEP
process, I help to educate and support families as they navigate through the
world of Special Education. Some of the
services I am able to provide are:
- Attend IEP and Eligibility
meetings with parents for support
- One on one meetings with parents to
discuss IEP or school issues
- Connecting parents to community
resources: respite, recreation and social, etc.
- Assisting parents in finding and
applying for benefits and transitioning out of high school
- Providing parent trainings and resource
As a parent mentor I am committed to building relationships
between home, school and community.
These relationships are the key to success for students with
disabilities in school and in life.
