Elementary School-Parent-Student Reading Compact
When students, parents, and teachers become active participants in a child’s education, the student will achieve greater lifetime success.
This reading compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards.
This school will:
Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the participating child to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards as follows:
ü Utilize district reading intervention programs
ü Assess and monitor student’s reading instructional needs
ü Teach reading skills and strategies good readers use
ü Build on the student’s success
ü Hold fall and spring parent-teacher conferences
ü Provide parents with frequent updates on their child’s progress.
ü Teachers are available from 8:20 a.m. until 3:50 p.m. Please call, e-mail, or send a note to set up a good time for a phone call or a conference.
ü If you would like to observe and/or participate in your child’s experience in the reading classroom, please call or e-mail the teacher. We will set up a time that is convenient for all parties.
We, as a Parent(s)/Guardian(s), will support our child’s learning in the following ways:

ü Monitor our child’s attendance
ü Monitor the amount of television our child watches
ü Actively participate in our child’s education and communicate with the school
