The primary role of a Family and Community Liaison is to provide support and assistance to students, parents/guardians and families within the Homer School District. Liaisons focus on what students need, both within school walls and the surrounding community, to overcome any barriers they may have to success. Liaisons work to bridge gaps in communication between school and home by helping families get the information, support, and services they need to ensure their child’s academic and social potential is being met in school. Liaisons facilitate parent-school communication, community agency referrals, encourage parent and family involvement in the school, cultivate trust between parents/guardians and the school community, and foster higher academic achievement through collaboration with school personnel.
