Families & Schools: Perfect Partners for Student Success 

Governor Ralph S. Northam, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. James F. Lane and the Virginia Department of Education recognize November as Family Engagement Month in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The importance of parental engagement 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.
