Save the Date! Family Engagement in Education Month – November 2019

SARASOTA COUNTY, October 16, 2019 – November is Family Engagement in Education Month. Research shows that family-school partnerships not only strengthen families and increase student achievement, but also improve schools and build community. Students with engaged families, regardless of demographics, are more likely to develop confidence, have better social skills, earn higher grades and test scores, have fewer behavior problems, graduate and go on to post-secondary studies. The Florida Department of Education recognizes the vital role that schools and families play throughout a child's educational journey.

Be on the lookout for engaging events and activities from your child’s school throughout the month of November!
