 Meet our Parent Support Specialists

Rico Gonzales
Parent Support Specialist
My name is Mrs. Tristan-Perez and I am the Parent Support Specialist at T.A. Brown,
I promote, facilitate and develop parent/family engagement in our school. This includes building capacity for parent leadership in the District, working with community groups to engage and support parents, and identifying resources for parents and families. 
I also:
  • Organize and provide ongoing parent/family/community engagement trainings and meetings in coordination with the campus and vertical team principals, campus and district staff, and other community entities. 
  • Assist parents/families/community and staff in understanding district, state, and federal practices and policies (including the Title One family compact and parent involvement policy.)
  • Assist the principal and other campus staff with identifying effective strategies for increasing parent participation by utilizing The National Standards of PTA. 
  • Establish and maintain productive working relationships with campus staff and parents/families/community and community resource providers. 
  • Document program activities and outcomes, which will promote the identification of successful practices and the sharing of these practices. 
  • Collaborate closely with the Learning Support Services Team, the Campus Advisory Council (CAC) and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA/PTSA) on each campus and at the vertical team level. 

Feel free to contact me for more information or if I can be of any assistance to you and your family,
