Bilingual Family Liaisons

The West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) Bilingual Family Liaison (BFL) team strengthens and empowers culturally and linguistically diverse students, parents, and families, as members of our school community, to advocate for the educational opportunities of their children and prepare them for their life journey.

The BFL team plans and coordinates services focused on strengthening the relationship between home, school, and our diverse community. The team assists families in accessing and utilizing community and school resources and provides interpreting and translation service for students and families.

WDMCS has four Bilingual Family Liaisons who can assist English Learners and their families as they navigate the district. Three of the liaisons speak Spanish, and one speaks Burmese Hakha Chin.
