The administrator's manual is designed to help Minnesota's school districts to implement their new surrogate parent programs. The first section explains what must occur according to federal and state rules and regulations on the topic. Three steps are identified: (1) identifying students who need surrogate parents; (2) recruiting and naming surrogate parents; and (3) understanding the duties of, and training for, surrogate parents. The second section contains answers to commonly asked questions regarding legal liability, eligibility, terms, and special considerations. The final section provides specific guidelines for school districts to use in developing surrogate parent programs (based on the three steps addressed in section 1). (CL)
