Description of Position
I work on Family Engagement through the Family Resource Centers. Learning how to get families more engaged through activities events and volunteer opportunites. Another important aspect is working with outside agencies who can provide a needed service at the school and for the students. Also, getting community members and business's more engaged in school activities. I also work with a group of agencies to provide Town Halls on teaching the community the basics of Medicaid, how it benefits families and even who can qualify, to include Medicaid Expansion.
