Roles of the Special Education Family Liaison

The Special Education Family Liaison is a new position that serves as a bridge between families and the Special Education department. The position aims to promote family and community engagement by providing information to families, students, educators and community partners about Special Education services in the district.

  • Help with understanding Special Education processes and procedures
