According to the Title I regulations, each school must share responsibility with parents for attaining high student performance by developing a compact with the parents of children participating in the program. The Title I compact must outline how parents, staff, and students will share responsibility for promoting high student achievement. Parents and staff on the Title I Advisory Committee will initially be involved in designing and evaluating the compact.
The School-Parent-Student Compact will be distributed to parents each fall from their child’s school. The compact will include a statement providing parents of Title I children, if requested, opportunities for meetings to formulate suggestions and to participate in decisions in relation to the education of their children. The school will respond to any such suggestions if and as soon as practicably possible. The compact will also contain a checklist of responsibilities that principals, teachers, parents, and students will have for helping students achieve their goals.
