Family Engagement

Family
Engagement
Parents are the first teachers and most important advocates for their children. Research shows that students are most successful academically and socially when their parents are involved and engaged in their learning. Encouraging family engagement can help turn around the state's achievement problems, starting with making significant progress against the milestone of grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
Healthy
Readers
Learning begins at birth and healthy development greatly impacts children's ability to learn. Children who are on track in their physical, social and emotional, cognitive, and verbal development are more successful learners from their earliest years, and they are more likely to become proficient readers by the end of the third grade.
State Level
Outreach and
Professional
Development
The WVDE works with child and family advocates to help assure a seamless system of care, services, and supports from birth through third grade. This includes policy and practice that promotes children's optimal social, emotional, and cognitive development; improves professional development for the early childhood education workforce, and supports parents as their children's first teacher and best advocate.
