Posted: December 15, 2003
Charleston, W.Va. – The West Virginia Board of Education reinforces its commitment to children and learning during its December Board of Education meeting in Charleston. The Board signed a joint resolution with the West Virginia Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
This joint resolution acknowledges the importance of parent and family involvement in education and emphasizes the need for collaborative relationships between families and schools for strengthening student learning.
“The Board of Education has always promoted a positive relationship with parent organizations,” said State Superintendent of Schools David Stewart. “This resolution is a visible means of exemplifying the importance of parent involvement.”
Parent Teacher Association representatives from across the country are signing similar joint resolutions with educational leaders. West Virginia joins approximately 20 other states with its recent action.
