Parental Involvement Day in Wisconsin

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- National Parental Involvement Day is a day to focus on the importance of parents taking a strong role in their children's education.

By the request of the company All Parents on Deck, Governor Scott Walker signed a proclamation declaring November 15, 2012 as "Parental Involvement Day" in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin is celebrating for the first time "Parental Involvement Day" and joined ten other states who have officially declared the 3rd Thursday in November as "National Parental Involvement Day."

All Parents on Deck is a parent-centered advocacy organization that was created to provide support to parents who have students in school, from the elementary grade level through college.

The company's creator, Sharon Edwards-Billings, joined us on 27 News at 5 on Thursday to discuss what parents can do to get more involved in their child's life.
