BIG SKY – After several months of searching, the Big Sky School District has found its parent liaison.
Resident Lori Swenson will fill the newly created position, designed to help parents and teachers communicate, problem-solve and work as partners in children’s success.
“Our goal is to develop a partnership between school and home to empower everyone involved to develop strong and successful children,” said Swenson, an occupational therapist with experience working in multiple school systems.
She will facilitate Love and Logic parenting classes, provide parents with information about community resources, help them navigating the school system, and support families based on their individual needs.
Long-term program goals are to increase family stability, student success and graduation rates.
A partnership between two local nonprofits, Women In Action and Thrive, created the program; it was designed as a companion program to the CAP mentoring program, also new this year, which uses a preventative empowerment model of working with parents, schools and the community.
Swenson and her family have lived in Big Sky for four years.
