Circuit 13 Information


Synopsis of what has been done in Circuit 13 regarding the Everyone is a Teacher initiative.

Provided to Bronwyn Stanford from Jan Gregory

Hi Bronwyn:
I have met with HKI (Nancy Newkirk) and the OAG (Bill Navas) regarding the "Everyone's a Teacher" initiative and we reviewed what is already being done in our circuit.

Presentations have been made at the community alliance on foster children and the C13 dependency court improvement meeting.

The School Board has offered Exceptional Student Education Training for your foster parents twice (this school year- December and January) No attendees in December and one group home parent and one care manager attended. ESE training provided to approximately 20 HKI Care Managers in March 2011. They are going to try going through the Foster Parent Assoc. meetings too. They are scheduled for our first Surrogate Parent training for up to 25 guardian ad litems volunteers.

Hillsborough County Public Schools provides a High School Guidance Counselor on Special Assignment for additional educational support to our students in licensed foster care. The Counselor works in collaboration with school site personnel, student, foster parents/guardians, and Hillsborough Kids.

Here is the total presentation that was made:
