I certify the above to be true and hereby authorize Pathway of Hope Youth and Family Services to release required information regarding my child or Ward for the purpose of school planning, including that which is needed, for post-discharge educational planning. I also agree that the school district my child is attending may release my child’s education records to Pathway of Hope.
