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 our liaison directly to begin engaging in these services or to ask questions.

Tutor Ohio Kids


On recent national tests, Ohio students scored at the lowest levels
seen in decades due to impacts of the pandemic and beyond. Our kids
are falling behind and while schools and educators are working hard to
catch them up, they need help.


That's where Tutor Ohio Kids comes in to make a difference. If anyone
has ever felt the call to work with kids and make a difference in their
learning trajectory, now is the time to do so. Tutors can work with kids
in person or virtually, before school, during the school day, after
school, or even on weekends.
