LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Department of Education has launched a campaign to help student’s achieve academic success by encouraging communication between parents and teachers.

The My Child/My Student campaign encourages productive conversations between a student’s parents and his teacher.

The campaign gives parents and teachers the tools and resources they need to have meaningful conversations about a child’s academic progress.

Each month, the campaign will highlight a specific topic. Along with the topic, a group of questions for parents and teachers will be posted on ADE’s website, Facebook and Twitter sites. The questions are designed to encourage conversations throughout the year.

Education Commissioner Tony Wood says research shows that when parents and teachers work together, the chance for academic success increases.
