Family Liaisons

Northside Family Engagement has targeted support for Title I schools through a Family Liaison who is dedicated to that school. The Family Liaisons at the schools are there to provide support and engage families in a way that connects them to learning. Family Liaisons enhance families and staff members in their everyday efforts. They provide opportunities to enage families in authentic ways that support learning. We believe in empowering families so they are active partners at Northside schools. 

 

PreK 4 SA: Getting Families Kinder Ready

The Family Enagement Program is very excited to have a PreK for SA Family Liaison who is focused on getting families ready for Kindergarten. This Liaison is working with preschool families within the city limits to provide information about Kindergarten, what skills children need, and how families can be empowered partners during the transition from preschool to Kindergarten. 

 

Literacy Happens at Home

The Northside Family Engagement Program has been awarded a grant through House Bill 4 that supports early childhood intervention and development. We have 4 Preschool Liaisons that are working in every Northside school to provide early literacty activities, skills, and support to families. Our Preschool Teachers and Liaisons are teaming up all over the district to build relationships with families and empower them to partner with our schools to support early literacy.
