The Family Center School Liaison
Navigating the education system can overwhelming course at times. For that reason, the School Liaison are here to give you full assistance to provide school support services. They serve as a primary point of contact for school-related matters. The School Liaison works as a resource to families, schools and the community. Some of their main goal is to:
- Increase overall student attendance and graduation rates,
- Reduce truancy rates,
- Identify systemic issues, barriers, trends and needs,
- Network and disseminate information,
- Design solutions and expand system capacity.
The School Liaison ensures that all Family Members experiencing Child Requiring Assistance (CRA)-related issues are connected to services that meet their individual needs and ensures that there is a process established to provide information and referral and direct assistance where possible for individual Family Members. This may include meetings with teachers, assistance with obtaining an Individual Education Plan, and meetings with other school personnel, as necessary. The School Liaison facilitates parent education and support groups that run on a regular basis at the Family Center.
