The Family Engagement Month 2017 webpage has links to the state proclamation declaring November as Georgia Family Engagement Month and an archived copy of the Parent Resolution adopted by the State Board of Education in 2010. This webpage also has ideas from Georgia school systems on last year’s celebration of Family Engagement Month. Click here to view the links to these documents.
I want to thank all of you who have taken on the important task of engaging parents and families in your schools. Together, we can continue to create meaningful Family-School Partnerships, in November and year-round.
Georgia’s School Superintendent
