My name is Laura Knee and I am the family engagement specialist for Avon Public Schools.  According to educational author Larry Ferlazzo, "When schools engage parents they are leading with the parents' self-interests (their wants and dreams) in an effort to develop a genuine partnership."  It is with this in mind that this position was created to develop a bridge between parents, teachers, and schools to work together in the best interest of our children.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I am housed at Roaring Brook Elementary School (860) 404-4810.  I can also be reached on my cell phone (860) 987-2832 or by email:

I look forward to working with you and your children!
