This 2015, one of your goals could be to engage in the education of your children. Positive, productive and ongoing communication is important between a child’s parent and teacher is essential to academic success.
Education and community organizations, the State Board of Education, and the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE), have partnered to launch the My Child/My Student campaign.
Education Commissioner Tony Wood says the goal of this campaign is to encourage on-going communication between parents and teachers.
The campaign will give parents helpful information and tips they can use to discuss their child’s educational progress and goals. Additionally, teachers will be provided questions, tips and resources they can use to converse with a student’s parent or guardian.
The ADE invite all schools, organizations, and supporters to use, revise, post, and or share the documents and social media assets. The ADE will post resources, tips and links to helpful for parents and teachers in this website www.arkansased.org, and a new topic will be highlighted each month throughout the 2015 school year.
