The mission of the Parent Liaison Program is to create strong partnerships between schools and parents to ensure success for all children. Parent liaisons are professionals who work as part of a school team to help bridge the gap between home and school. They offer individualized support, parent education opportunities, community and school resource connection, and encourage communication and connection between teachers, staff, and parents that supports students’ success at school and at home. The program is strengths based, voluntary, and available to all parents, as all families need support at some time. The Parent Liaison Program model was developed by Thrive in Bozeman Montana and implemented in Sheridan County in school year 2015-2016 as public/private partnership between Thrive, Sheridan County School District #2/Next Level, Compass Center for Families and key community stakeholders. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your parent liaison. When families are strong, children succeed and communities thrive.
