parent family liaison Zabrina Negron

Communities in Schools of Eastern Pennsylvania would not be the impactful, supportive organization it is without the hard work of its employees. Parent family liaisons, one crucial part of the puzzle at CIS of Eastern PA, work each day to bridge the gap between students’ home and school lives. Zabrina Negron fills this role within Easton Area School District


Zabrina assists in providing support to EASD families in a safe, understanding, and approachable way. She wants families to feel welcomed and view their child’s school staff trustworthy. Support takes different forms depending on each family’s needs; services may include health and welfare, nutrition, counseling, emotional support, and language translation.


Each parent family liaison's day varies. Zabrina usually spends time doing home visits to her assigned families, ensuring their basic needs are met. Critical parts of her job include performing wellness checks with school staff, assisting students and family members with language barriers, and helping in meetings. She also appears in court and devotes time to researching more resources that might help her families. 


The parent family liaison role also involves creating programming to support students and their families beyond school hours. Zabrina particularly enjoys this part of her job, as she is familiar with her families' challenges and the questions they want answered. Informative Workshops for ESL students and families and consultations with immigration lawyers are two free programs that she’s passionate about. 


Parent family liaisons serve an imperative role at CIS of Eastern PA. An engaged family is a considerable part of a student’s success. They help children grow into consistent, social, and reliable students. Zabrina knows firsthand how families lead the way to a student’s bright future, which sits at the heart of our mission.
