November is Family Involvement In Education Month

Governor Terrance R. McAuliffe, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Steven R. Staples and the Virginia Department of Education recognize November 2015 as Family Involvement Month in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The importance of parental involvement in schools is well documented. Over 30 years of research shows that one of the most effective ways to increase student achievement is for parents to be actively involved in the education of their children.

The Virginia Department of Education is committed to improving parent and family involvement for all students including students with disabilities.  Click here to find resources on family involvement in education.
