According to the U.S. Department of Education, a School-Parent Compact is a written agreement of shared responsibility that–
- Defines the goals and expectations of schools and parents as partners in the effort to improve student achievement.
- Outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will work together and build a partnership to help students achieve high academic standards.
- Translates the policies and goals of parents and schools into “action” statements. (i.e., What will administrators, teachers, and parents do to make policies and goals a reality?)
- Serves as a catalyst for collaboration and a guide for ongoing, better communication, interactions and exchanges between school staff and parents.
