Cultural Liaisons and Interpreters
School District 197 values the relationships we build with the communities we serve. Several schools have staff members dedicated to working with families and students in order to foster these relationships for the success of all. This page highlights this group of cultural liaisons, family liaisons, community support workers and interpreter/translators who make up this team.
