The Ohio Department of Education recognizes the important role families play in their child’s education. Important information on their website states:
Family and Community Engagement is a critical part of helping our students achieve academic success.
Family involvement strengthens student learning and improves academic achievement. Students with active family support have better attendance, pass more classes and earn more credits resulting in higher grade point averages and higher test scores. As a result, they are more likely to continue their education beyond high school and learn social and behavioral skills that help them at home, at school and throughout life.
