The Family Liaisons work cooperatively with students, adult family members, school staff and community partners to remove barriers that prevent students from learning. Liaisons function as intermediaries and advocates, providing students with proactive preventative services which promote success; socially, behaviorally, and academically, through deliberate and effective targeted family interactions. Liaisons assist with planning, organizing and implementing family events in their related schools. They will also identify resources and services from the community to support families as needed.
