Parenting Compact

  

Title I Parent-Student-Teacher Compact

We know that learning can take place only where there is a combination of effort, interest, and motivation. Because we are all committed to your child's progress at _________________________  , we are going to do our best to promote his or her achievement. This compact is a promise to work together. Together we can improve teaching and learning. Please read and sign the parent/guardian section. Read the student section with your child(ren) and send back one compact with each child tomorrow. We look forward to a productive and successful school year.
