Parent Liaisons

Parent Liasons serve as a link between families and schools. They facilitate family-school communication, which empowers families to become more active partners in their children’s education.

The Role of Parent Liaisons

  • Tools to establish relationships and communication with the school
  • Translation services
  • Access to both on and off campus services
