November is Parental Involvement MonthParent Involvement month is a time to celebrate the important role parents play in their children's education. When schools work together with families to support learning, children are inclined to succeed not just in school, but throughout life.
The Florida Department of Education recognizes the vital roles that schools and families play throughout a child's educational career.
To help parents and families stay involved in education, we want to share with you a few simple ways to stay engaged.
- Establish a daily family routine.
- Monitor out-of-school activities.
- Model the value of learning, self-discipline, and hard work.
- Express high but realistic expectations for achievement.
- Encourage children's development/ progress in school.
- Encourage reading, writing, and discussions among family members.
