My Child/My Student
2020-2021 My Child/My Student Campaign
The goal of the My Child/My Student campaign is to encourage positive, productive communication between parents and teachers. Research shows that ongoing effective communication between parents and teachers results in improved student learning and support. With the impact of COVID-19 on education in Arkansas, this communication is more important than ever!
The focus of this year’s campaign is to provide timely information to both parents and teachers to help them navigate the school year in light of the pandemic. Instead of monthly college and career readiness and student safety topics and links to resources on this webpage (combined with accompanying social media posts), the campaign will shift primarily to social media, where the latest parent/teacher resources and information will be posted.
To see the latest parent/teacher resources, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where related social media posts also will be translated into Spanish. Be sure to also follow posts using #ARStudentFocused and #EngagementMattersAR.
Additional parent resources are always available at https://dese.ade.arkansas.gov/Stakeholders/parents-and-families, with teacher resources available at https://dese.ade.arkansas.gov/Stakeholders/teachers.
