  • School-Parent Compact Agreement

    The education of a student is not only the responsibility of the teachers, but also of the parent and child.  For this reason, a School-Parent Compact has been developed, jointly with parents, community members and campus staff, to be utilized in our school.  This document will serve as an agreement between all parties that they will adhere to certain duties and responsibilities to ensure the success of all students.  This compact is to be used to motivate students and parents to become more involved in the educational process and to let parents know that they are equal partners in their child’s learning.
