Elementary Home-School Compact
What is a Home School Compact?
According to the 1994 Title I amendments, a school-parent compact is an agreement developed between parents and schools "that outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the state's high standards." The document serves as a blue-print — specific to the school — for everyone participating in a child's education. Oftentimes, a compact is signed by parents, teachers and students as a sign of commitment, though this is not required by law.
