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. 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
The flyer from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) provides hints and tips on how to become involved at school.
