  • How can a Parent Liaison Help me?

    * Schedule Conferences and Meetings

    I will be happy to be your interpreter if your first language is Spanish. However, if you speak any other language and need an interpreter, I can arrange an interpreter that speaks your language.      

     • I can help you arrange meetings between you and your child’s teacher to discuss your concerns, share information, and understand your point of view.

    • If at any time you would like to have a meeting with a teacher or a staff member to talk about your child’s academic performance, or don’t exactly know how you can help in the educational process, I can schedule a conference for you.

    Here are some examples of the kind of conferences that you might need help with: -Regular Parent/Teacher Conferences -IEP Conferences -Eligibility Meetings and Special Education related meetings -Child Study Meetings and follow up documentation -Guidance Conferences -Emergency Meetings -Meetings requested by a parent just to know how you can help your child at home to be more successful.
