From: The Montgomery Public School System;

October is the time of year when the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) raises awareness of the importance of parental involvement and the key role that parents play in their child's education.  It is a time for local school systems to make that extra effort to invite parents to visit their local school and learn how they can become partners in their child's education. This year's theme is Better Together:  Home and School Partnership. A guide for schools is designed each year.

The ALSDE encourages schools to showcase their best and for parents to visit their children's schools. Because parent involvement—now more than ever—is such a critical factor in determining the success or failure of students and schools, the Alabama State Department of Education recognizes the need for ongoing, meaningful parent involvement. 

 Statewide Parent Visitation Month is intended to be a community effort—a time for schools, businesses, community agencies, churches, and government to turn their attention to the important role of parents in the education of their children.  We extend an invitation for all schools and parents to become a part of this important statewide event.
