Parent Compact

At the beginning of every school year, an updated Parent Compact is sent home with every student in our Title I Schools.

The Parent Compact outlines the responsibilities of the school, the parent, and the student.

Please contact your child’s school if you would like another copy of the Parent Compact.

* Please note, we also have a Spanish version of our Parent Compact available.
