• Often, parents feel uncomfortable about sharing their questions or concerns with the teachers or school administration. Because good communication between home and school is such a vital part of your child’s academic success, the Parent Liaison will listen to your concerns and then work with you to make sure that your situation, question or point of view is expressed and understood. They will help and support you if you need to find ways to resolve any issues that may be hindering your child’s success in school. Parent Liaisons want to be sure that you understand what you can do to get involved, keep informed, share information, and help your child do his or her best.
     

    WHAT KIND OF ASSISITANCE CAN THE PARENT LIAISON PROVIDE?

    • I will provide you with a personal tour of the school and explain the programs and resources available to you and your child. You do not have to be a new parent to get a school tour.
    • I will discuss some of the ways you can get more involved with the school.
    • I will answer questions you may have about school rules and regulations.
    • I will help arrange meetings between you and your child’s teachers or the school administration so that important information about your child is shared and understood.
    • At your request, I will accompany you to a parent conference or other important meetings at school to help clarify information about your child or home situation.
    • I will help you arrange for an interpreter if you need to communicate in your own language.
    • I will refer you to resources available for special help or services for your child or your family.
