What is a School-Parent Compact?

  • A School-Parent Compact is a shared agreement that describes how parents, children, and the school will work together to support the child’s learning. The School-Parent Compact should be shared at the beginning of the school year with parents and then reviewed during conferences. Title I parents have the right, by law, to be involved in the development and revision of the School-Parent Compact.  The Compact has 3 sections - parent section, student section, and school section.  The school section must include 6 required components:

      • Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction
      • Hold parent-teacher conferences
      • Provide parents with reports on their child’s progress
      • Provide parents reasonable access to staff
      • Provide parents opportunities to volunteer
      • Ensure regular two-way meaningful communication between family members and staff, to the extent practicable, in a language family members can understand
