Engaging families in all aspects of schooling cultivates greater student engagement, brings improved academic results, better social outcomes, and helps every young person to reach their full potential.  The Victorian Department of Education has recognised the need to engage all of our public school families and Parents Victoria is pleased to help facilitate this partnership.  We encourage you to share these resources with your colleagues and put some of the great ideas into action at your school or work with others in your network.
