Parent Engagement

Families play an important role in how well students do in school. Find information about the importance of teachers and parents working together on behalf of kids, as well as examples of programs that specifically make the link between home and school. If you're a parent, you may be interested in what you can do at home to support your child's learning — browse (and subscribe to) our Growing Readers parent newsletter for monthly tips. You'll find more resources in our For Parents section.
