Parent Liaison - A Link Between Home and School
Who Are Parent Liaisons?
Parent liaisons are school staff members who work with both parents and staff. They help you get the information and assistance you need to support your child at home and ensure your child’s success in school.
Parent liaisons serve as a communication link between home and school. They welcome and orient families to the school and familiarize them with Fairfax County Public Schools’ procedures and practices.
Why Do Schools Have Parent Liaisons?
Schools have parent liaisons because parent liaisons know a great deal about your child’s school and community. They are a valuable resource for you. They can connect you with the appropriate people within the school or community who can help you meet your family’s needs.
The parent liaisons establish and build successful working relationships with the families of all children in the school. They appreciate the school’s cultural diversity and work to foster unity, cohesiveness, and cooperation among all families and staff.
All parent liaisons are proficient in English; many speak one or more additional languages.
