Acton Elementary School – Parent – Student Compact 2018-2019
Each Title I funded school is required to distribute to all parents a School – Parent – Student Compact. The compact is an agreement used to outline how parents, the school staff, and the students can improve student achievement. It is the responsibility of all three groups to develop a partnership that will help the children achieve the high academic standards for the state of Texas.
- Provide high–quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the participating students to meet the State's student academic achievement standards as follows: Acton Elementary teachers will teach the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills to each student. All teachers will understand the needs of each student. Teachers will communicate with parents to make them aware of their child's academic progress.
- Hold parent – teacher conferences (at least annually in the elementary schools) during which this compact will be discussed as it relates to the individual student achievement. The conferences will highlight the strengths and areas for improvement and will be held at a time when parents and teachers are both available to connect.
- Provide parents with frequent reports of their child's progress. Specifically, the school will provide the following reports: Report cards will be sent home at the end of each grading period. Progress reports will be sent home at the end of three weeks into the grading period. Parents have access to Skyward Family Access.
- Provide parents reasonable access to staff. Specifically, staff members will be available for consultation with parents as follows: Staff members will be available to parents before school, after school and during their planning as scheduled.
- Provide parents opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child's class, and to observe classroom activities, as follows: Parents may schedule a formal observation visit to their child's classroom. Parents are also encouraged to volunteer in ways that will support the classroom instruction and build a positive school culture.
We, as parents, will support our children's learning in the following ways:
- Go over my child’s assignment(s) with him/her.
- Give my child time to study.
- Make sure my child gets enough sleep at night.
- Make sure my child is at school on time.
- Attend family nights and parent conferences.
We, as students, will share the responsibility to improve our academic achievement and achieve the State's high academic standards. Specifically, we will:
- Be at school on time, unless I am sick.
- Be responsible for my own choices.
- Be an attentive listener and produce quality work.
- Be the best version of myself.
