Parent-School Support
Parent Liaison's
Parent Liaisons' support parents by:
  • Information - Parent Liaisons can provide parents with a personal tour of the school and explain the programs and resources available to them and their child. Parents do not have to be new to the school to get a tour. Liaisons can discuss some of the ways parents can be more involved with the school and their child’s education. Liaisons can answer questions parents may have about school rules and regulations. Liaisons will advise parents of special events.
  • Conferences - Working closely with the school administration, liaisons can help arrange meetings between parent and child’s teachers and school personnel so that important information about their child is shared and understood. At the parent’s request, liaisons can accompany them to a parent conference or other important meetings at the school to help clarify information about their child or home situation. Liaisons will help parents arrange for an interpreter if they need to communicate in their own language.
  • Communication - The Parent Liaison will work closely with the school to keep our parents informed of all activities including back-to-school nights, workshops, etc. In addition to handouts, parents can elect to receive updates via e-mail, text message, and their school and district webpage.
  • Workshops - The Parent Liaison will notify parents of upcoming workshops using the above mentioned communication methods.
  • Special Help and Services - Liaisons will provide information on agencies where parents need to go to get help or services for a child or their family. Examples include: Medical/Glasses, School Supplies, Afterschool Programs, Athletic Programs, Housing, Food, Clothing, etc.
