    WHAT IS A FAMILY LIAISON?

    A Family Liaison is a LCPS staff member, not a volunteer, who works to bridge the communication between school and home by helping parents get the information, help, and support they need to ensure their child's academic and social success in school. A Family Liaison is to empower parents to become active participants in the education of their children.  Confidentiality is always upheld!

    HOW CAN MY FAMILY LIAISON HELP ME?

    The Family   Liaison will listen to your concerns and then work with you to make sure that your situation, questions, or point of view is expressed and understood. They will help support you if you need to find ways to resolve any issues that may be hindering your child's success in school.
