My Child/My Student

2018-2019 My Child/My Student Campaign




The State Board of Education and the Arkansas Department of Education are proud to launch the 2018-2019 My Child/My Student public awareness campaign!

The goal of this campaign, in its fifth year, is to encourage positive and productive communication between parents and teachers. Ongoing communication builds a support network that encourages student learning and success.

The campaign highlights a college and career readiness topic and student safety topic each month during the campaign, which begins in August and ends in May. Resources and links to helpful information for parents and teachers are posted on this page and ADE's social media throughout the school year. The 2018-2019 Topics List (2018-2019 Temas de comunicación) is available and provides questions for parents and teachers to consider when communicating with each other.  

Schools, organizations and supporters are invited to share the 2018-2019 resources below and to follow ADE on Facebook and Twitter, as campaign resources are posted throughout the school year.
