Title 1 Parent / School Compact

Policy #6830 requires that each school involved in Title I programs shall jointly develop with parents of participating children a school-parent compact that outlines how parents, staff, and 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 to help children achieve the State’s high standards.
 

The school-parent compact shall:

  1. Describe the school’s responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables Title I students to meet the challenging State academic standards;
  2. Indicate the ways in which each parent will be responsible for supporting their child’s learning; volunteering in their child’s classroom; and participating, as appropriate, in decisions related to their child’s education and positive use of extracurricular time;
  3. Address the importance of ongoing teacher-parent communication through parent-teacher conferences, frequent reports to parents, reasonable access to school staff, and opportunities to volunteer, participate in and observe their child’s classroom activities; and
  4. Ensure regular, two-way, meaningful communication between family members and school staff, and, to the extent practicable, in a language that family members can understand.
