The Monomoy Elementary Schools and the families of all students participating in activities, services, and programs funded by Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) agree that this compact outlines how families, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and families will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards. In the Monomoy Elementary Schools, Title I partially funds academic intervention services for qualifying students and teacher professional development.
Harwich Elementary School will:
Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the participating children to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards. As stated in theMRSD Strategic Plan, “We share a vision of high student expectations and effective teaching, deliver an interdisciplinary curriculum which provides appropriate levels of challenge for each learner, foster strong parent and community partnerships, and promote and celebrate the achievements of all, in order to create a supportive, positive Monomoy culture that will inspire all learners.”
Hold parent/guardian-teacher conferences in the fall and as requested by families during which this compact will be discussed as it relates to the individual child’s achievement.
Provide families with frequent reports on their children’s progress. Specifically, the school will provide report cards for each of the three grading term each school year.
Provide families reasonable access to staff. If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress, please contact your child’s teacher.
Provide families opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child’s school experience such as the Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs), School Councils, Task Forces, classroom volunteering, and special school events.
We, as families, will support our children’s learning in the following ways:
Ensuring consistent school attendance.
Providing a positive environment at home to support school and learning.
Monitoring that homework is completed to the best of the child’s ability.
Reading at home at least 30 minutes each day.
Participating, as appropriate, in decisions relating to my children’s education.
