The School Community Liaisons perform a variety of duties throughout the school day. Our main duties are to work with students and families on issues facing them both in and outside of school as they impact education. Some of the barriers students and families experience include: truancy, homelessness, teen parenting, family crisis, poverty, lack of food and clothing, legal issues, medical & mental health issues, communication, and cultural issues. We strive to assist in locating resources within the community to help our students be successful at school as well as at home and in the community.
