School-Parent Compacts: A Tool for Learning Improvement. Presenter's Guide.
Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Indianapolis, IN. Region B.; PRC, Inc., Indianapolis, IN.
This guide contains materials for the presentation of a half-day introductory workshop to parents on school-parent compacts, which are now required of all schools receiving federal Title 1 funds. Parent-School Compacts offer a means of redefining the community vision of school and parent support roles in promoting student learning. By creating a Parent-School Compact document, parents and teachers think through their beliefs and differences to reach consensus on the compact's contents. The document includes a presenter's guide, handouts, and transparency masters for a workshop on creating a Parent-School Compact. Included in the handouts are warm-up exercises to facilitate group interaction, background information on school-parent compacts, an overview of compact elements, models of school-parent compacts, and information on the National Education Goals. National Education Goal eight calls for the establishment of school-parent partnerships. An appendix contains sample school-parent compacts from several school districts. (MDM)
