As part of the Department of Education’s No Child Left Behind waiver extension, the Department pledged to increase communication with parents of Hoosier students through a quarterly message.

The Family Engagement Message video is Mrs. Ritz's first message to Hoosier families of children in our PreK to grade 12 school systems. The video addresses family engagement, as well as introduce parents to a section of the DOE website called the Parent Portal. Family engagement is a vital part of each child's education.
