Each school receiving funds under Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act must develop a written school-parent compact. This compact was created with input from parents, teachers, and students. The compact is a component of the Parent Involvement Policy that was written with input from parents and teachers. The following compact outlines how the school staff, parents, and students will share responsibility for improved student academic achievement and how the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards.
