November is Florida Family Engagement in Education Month

Family Engagment Month Logo

Florida Family Engagement in Education Month is a time to celebrate the important role parents and families play in their children's education. When schools work together with families to support learning, children are more motivated to succeed-not just in school, but throughout life.

The Florida Department of Education recognizes the vital role that schools and families play throughout a child's educational journey. To help schools celebrate Florida Family Engagement in Education Month, we have created a toolkit, which can be accessed using the links below.
