Role of The ACE Liaisons:

The Liaison for each school district plays a key role in the overall program.  Liaisons serve as support professionals for participants and spokespersons for the ACE program within their local school districts.  They are the primary contact between the students/parents and the ACE program.

What Liaisons do:

  • Host an "Information Night" each Spring for potential ACE families.
  • Keep track of students' participation and encourage them to attend events.
  • Annually review student's progress in the ACE program.
  • Accompany or arrange supervision for students on ACE Campus Visits and other ACE field trips.
  • Meet with the Coordinator each month and with the Operating Committee once per year.
