Family Liaisons

​Family liaisons serve as the language and cultural bridge between families, schools, and the community. They welcome new bilingual families to Quincy Public Schools, share community resources with bilingual families, connect families, and work on assessing and addressing needs through communication, connection, and collaboration. They will be present at the central registration office to welcome new families. They also can be present at school events and meetings to connect with the school community and families.
