Reading specialists will serve as literacy coaches for the teachers and work with small groups of students with research-based reading instruction.The completion of a home/school compact is an essential component of the program. This compact outlines how the parents/guardians, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved 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.
Our 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 as follows:
- An approved curriculum that aligns with state standards
- Research-based instructional programs
- Highly qualified teachers to implement the curriculum
- Hold parent-teacher conferences during which this compact will be discussed as it relates to the individual child’s achievement. Conferences will be held in November and January
- Provide parents with frequent reports on their child’s progress. Report cards will be available four times per year at the end of each marking period.
- Provide parents/guardians reasonable access to staff. Staff members will be available via e-mail, by phone, or scheduled meetings. Contact information for each school is available on the District Website, http://www.cdschools.org/.
- Provide parents opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child’s class, and to observe classroom activities as described in the school handbook
