Governor Terrance R. McAuliffe, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Steven R. Staples and the Virginia Department of Education recognize November 2017 as Family Involvement Month In the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The importance of parental involvement 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.

November 2017 is Family Involvement Month in Schools
