A critical component of a student’s success in school is dependent on what and how they learn at home. The Toolkit for Parents and Families is a collection of materials and resources that will help parents and families understand how to help your child graduate from high school ready for college and careers. We encourage parents and families to use these tools in conjunction with the resources and information you receive from your child’s school and teachers. We will continue to build upon this toolkit as we receive feedback from educators and families.
