CMS-DSS Educational Liaisons

Four educational liaisons are assigned to each of the Department of Social Services (DSS) geographic districts.  Liaisons specifically support the success of CMS students who are in the custody of DSS.  Additionally, they liaise between CMS and DSS for the delivery of prompt and efficient service involving both agencies.
