These schools and the parents of the students participating in activities, services, and programs funded by Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (participating children), agree that this compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards.
This school-parent compact is in effect during school year 2023-2024.
REQUIRED SCHOOL-PARENT COMPACT PROVISIONS
The school will:
- Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the participating children to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards.
- Hold parent-teacher conferences (at least annually in elementary schools) during which this compact will be discussed as it relates to the individual child’s achievement.
- Provide parents with frequent reports on their children’s progress.

We, as parents/caregivers, will support our children’s learning in the following ways:

- Serve, to the extent possible, on policy advisory groups, such as being the Title I, Part A parent representative on the school’s School Effectiveness Team (SET), the Parent Advisory Committee, the District Wide Academic Council (DWAC), or other school advisory or policy groups.
