    Family Engagement in Education
    No matter how little or how much time you have, you can still have a positive impact on your child's education at school and at home. November has been recognized as "Family Engagement Month." We have some resources that we hope will help you become more active in you child's education. 

    The Family-School Partnership Resources is compiled by the Virginia Department of Education's Family Engagement Network (FEN). You will find links to many resources available to parents. Family-School Partnership Resources
