GREETINGS FROM YOUR COMMUNITY LIAISON:

My name is Lucia Rodriguez-V and I am Rancho Minervas Community and Family Liaison. A little bit about myself, I grew up in Davis, CA surrounded by a large and vivacious mexican family. Because of their love and support I was able to pursue my goals and graduate from Sacramento State with a degree in Sociology and Chican@ Studies.

The purpose of my job is to improve communication and student achievement by promoting parent and community involvement in the educational process; refer and provide information on the services available to students and families; convey and interpret information regarding school and district activities, policies, goals and procedures; plan, organize and coordinate a variety of events and activities in support of the district's educational program.

It is my goal that through my position families feel heard and appreciated; that together we can create a mechanism of empowerment and support so that the student reaches their full potential. Think of me as a resource and your best ally at Rancho Minerva!
