 Compacts


The Compacts page has been updated for the 2019-2020 school year as of May 23, 2019. There were no significant changes to the content of these templates from the 2018-2019 versions.​

This webpage offers several different examples of school-parent compacts as well as various useful tools. The Traditional Template outlines the essential components that schools are required to include in the compact. Additionally, schools can use the different Innovative Templates designed for each school-level that also outline the required components, but highlight specific academic strategies for schools, parents, and students in a family-friendly format. Schools are encouraged to use these samples in conjunction with the School-Parent Compact Guide to Quality to ensure that their school-parent compacts are effectively designed to meet Title I parent and family engagement requirements and support student academic achievement.
