Welcome to the Family Liaison Page
I am Shannon McKenna, your School Based Family Liaison. As the Family Liaison at P.S. duPont Middle School it is my goal to provide support to students, their guardians, and their teachers. I help parents and caregivers work in partnership with P.S. to meet their child’s learning needs. Our goal is to help families understand the important role they play as part of the educational team. Studies have shown that children do better in school when parents and educators work together. At P.S., parent involvement is a priority. The Family Liasion position is funded by Title 1 federal funds.
P.S. duPont also has a Family Engagement Team. This team includes teachers, guardians, community members and administrative staff. The Family Engagement Team is charged with creating a partnership environment. The school, the families and the community work closely together to make sure every single student succeeds.
