Community Liaisons

Community Liaisons


Butler County Success
 is a partnership between Lakota and the Butler County United Way, Butler County Job and Family Service, and The Butler County Educational Service Center aimed at removing the barriers to learning that many children face daily.

School Focus
Consult, collaborate, and cooperate with school personnel and community agencies in developing plans for students' academic success.

Student and Family Focus
Assess, communicate with, and assist students and families in understanding, learning, and determining ways to increase involvement in school.

Community Focus
Refer and interact with families and community agencies to coordinate available services, and convey to the parents, the school's genuine concern for positive learning and growth for each child. Some of the reasons for referrals can be, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Physical Needs (glasses, doctor, shots, etc.)
  • Mental Health Needs (assessment, counseling, etc.)
  • Academic Concerns (poor grades, classroom support, etc.)
  • Basic Needs (food, clothing, shelter, etc.)
  • Behavioral Concerns (acting out, social relationship concerns, etc.)
  • Attendance Concerns (Missing numerous days of school, consistent tardies, etc.)
  • Transportation (family ride to IAT/IEP meetings, doctor appointments, etc.)
  • Program Involvement (child would benefit from Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Mobile Food Pantry, etc.)

Resource Pantries
Through a partnership with Lakota’s District Parent Council, resource pantries have been created at each of our schools to help families who may be facing financial hardship. 

Referral System
A teacher, nurse, counselor, or other school staff member will recognize a need in a child or family for assistance and communicate this to a building administrator. From there the child or family's needs will be assessed, a plan of action will be determined, and detailed notes will be kept of the progress of the child/family. If necessary, there will be periodic meetings of everyone involved in the child/family case to discuss the progress of the situation.
