Family Liaison

As your Family Liaisons, we seek to facilitate communication between families, district staff, other families and community partners to better meet the social and academic needs of our students’ families. Our deliberate community-building approach is designed to forge partnerships throughout District 102. We are eager to collectively enact strategies that realize and develop our strengths as a whole. The diagram below provides an overview of the framework in which each Family Liaison operates within:

Welcome Center

The objective of the new D102 Welcome Center located at 333 N. Park Road, LaGrange Park, IL (inside of Park Jr. High) is to ensure a welcoming and inclusive environment for all District students' families, especially students from diverse backgrounds. The Welcome Center’s foundation focuses on supports, education, conversations, and celebrations that embrace all cultures and identities. Our center will host language classes, technology workshops, forums, family to family meet and greet, and much more. The center will be an expanding source of supports accessible to all families to further our students' academic success. Please setup an appointment with any of the Family Liaisons to visit and get connected. We look forward to seeing you soon!
