Welcome! Bienvenidos! Marhaba!

The Department of Language, Culture & Equity and Family Liaisons (FL) work together to build strong Family, School, Community Partnerships (FSCP). This team works as a bridge between families and PSD school communities. Family Liaisons create positive school experiences and help families navigate the school system, keeping parents informed and leading students towards academic achievement and postsecondary readiness. Our primary focus is to work with culturally and linguistically diverse and high needs families in our schools.  

Our program follows the Colorado Department of Education FSCP standards to guide programming in schools. Examples of this work can be found on the CDE website:

  1. Welcoming all Families
  2. Communicating Effectively
  3. Supporting Student Success
  4. Speaking Up for Every Child
  5. Sharing Power
  6. Collaborating with the community
  7. Dual Capacity-Building
Family Liaisons are at the heart of all Family Engagement work in PSD. Our team of 22 Family Liaisons is the key to helping families be involved and make meaningful connections to ensure that students can access educational opportunities that support a student's individual pursuits and interests in a changing world.
