LITTLE ROCK — Positive and productive communication between parents and teachers throughout the school year helps promote student success in and out of the classroom. To support parents and educators, the Arkansas Department of Education and State Board of Education are launching the 2019-2020 My Child/My Student public awareness campaign.

In its sixth year, the 10-month campaign highlights specific college, career, and community readiness topics, along with student safety and support topics, each month from August through May. The campaign includes links to multiple helpful resources about each topic, as well as guiding questions parents and teachers should consider when communicating about the topics.

“Ongoing communication between parents and teachers is a very important factor in student achievement and success,” ADE Secretary Johnny Key said. “The My Child/My Student public awareness campaign provides valuable tools to help aid that conversation. Together, parents and teachers are helping Arkansas lead the nation in student-focused education.”
