Parent Compact


The school-parent compact is a written agreement. The compact outlines how parents, teachers, other school staff, and students will share the responsibilities for improved student academic achievement.It explains what families and schools can do to help children reach high academic standards of excellence. Wheelersburg Elementary School receives Title I funds and is required to develop a school-parent compact. The important purpose of the school-parent compact is to serve as a clear reminder to all stakeholders’ their responsibilities at school and at home to ensure children attain the state’s academic standards. The underlying assumption is that a student’s academic success will improve when the home and school work together.
