School and Family Compact

Below is a copy of our School and Family Compact. All Title I parents, students, and teachers are required to sign off on and do their best to abide by the compact.

Pleasant Elementary

School-Family Compact

The purpose of the SCHOOL-PARENT COMPACT found in Section 1118 of Public Law 103-382, is to build and foster the development of a school-parent partnership to help all children achieve the State’s Standards. The parents, the child, and the teachers will share responsibility for improved student achievement.

It is the school’s responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective environment that enables the children to meet the State’s Student Performance Standards. Each parent is responsible for supporting their child’s learning, such as monitoring attendance, homework completion, and television watching; volunteering in their child’s classroom; and participating, as appropriate, in decisions relating to the education of their children and positive use of extracurricular time.
