Virginia Department of Education
Maximizing the Potential of All Students
Education is our most effective tool to reduce poverty, address racism, and sustain economic advancement for all Virginians. The Commonwealth is committed to ensuring that students and families in Virginia, regardless of their race, economic status, or the languages they speak at home, feel welcomed in their schools. Visit VirginiaIsForLearners.virginia.gov to learn more about the commitment to ensure that the Commonwealth’s public education system is positioned to achieve equitable academic outcomes for all students.
National Veterans & Military Families Month
The Commonwealth of Virginia has more than 80,300 military school aged children. During National Veterans and Military Families Month we respect and acknowledge the sacrifices veterans and military families make on a daily basis. Visit Military Families for resources and support for military service children and their families during all stages of transition and deployment.
Family Involvement in Education Month
Family Involvement in Education Month is an opportunity to recognize the important relationship between families and education institutions and the work being done throughout the Commonwealth to ensure that Virginians work together to build better futures for all children. The VDOE encourages family and community involvement in schools for all students including students with disabilities. Visit Resources for Families for ways to get involved in your child’s education at school and at home.
