What is a School-Parent Compact?

Effective compacts:

  • Link to goals of the school improvement plan
  • Focus on student learning skills
  • Describe how teachers will help students develop those skills using high-quality curriculum and effective instruction in a supportive learning environment
  • Share strategies parents can use at home
  • Explain how teachers and parents will communicate about student progress
  • Describe opportunities for parents to volunteer, observe, and participate in the classroom
