While this is a voluntary role, FCPS takes the issue of human relations very seriously. Human Relations liaisons are required to attend a three-hour annual training course presented by the Office of Equity and Compliance regarding diversity, equal opportunity, and effective communication skills. Together the human relations liaisons form a network of caring individuals who promote good human relations and positive environments; share resources and best practices.
