Title I: School-Parent-Child Compact


This compact outlines how parents, school staff, and the students at __LAUREL ELEMENTARY will share the responsibility for improved 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-child compact is in effect during the 2016-2017 school year.

The staff at Laurel Elementary School will:


·         Provide high quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables children to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards.

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

·         Promoting positive use of our children’s time outside of school

·         Staying informed about our children’s education and communicating with the school by promptly reading all notices from the school and responding, as appropriate

·         Participating in parent policy and advisory groups, to the extent possible

·         Showing a genuine interest in our children’s daily learning


We, as students, will share the responsibility to improve our academic achievement. Specifically, we will:
