October is being recognized in Colorado as a time to bring awareness to the partnership between families and schools in helping students succeed. (View the Governor’s proclamation here.) The Colorado Department of Education has many resources on this topic, and has recently established the State Advisory Council for Parent Involvement in Education. On their website you can find materials related to school-parent partnerships. Other helpful resources available from our library include Reading Tips for Parents published by the Colorado State Library and Connecting with Your Kids, a guidebook from the Colorado Supreme Court.
