What is a family and community liaison's role?

Liaisons are employees of the NCOESC that work with school districts to enhance the success of students and families within our districts. Liaisons are focused on increasing awareness of barriers that impact student and family engagement in their school and assist in generating solutions to overcome these barriers.

How is the program funded?

The liaison program is a no-cost service for schools, students and their families that was made possible by federal funding known as the CARES Act in 2020. Currently, the liaison program is being funded by ESSER funds and has been extended through 2024 in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and The Ohio State University.

How do we utilize this service?

You can reach out to either of our liaisons directly to begin engaging in these services or to ask questions.
