What is a School-Family Compact?

A School-Family Compact for Achievement is an agreement that parents, students and teachers develop together. It explains how parents and teachers will work together to make sure all our students reach grade-level standards.

*Effective compacts:

  • Link to goals of the school improvement plan
  • Focus on student learning
  • Show how teachers strive to provide the most supportive and effective learning environment possible that enables students to meet the state’s academic achievement standards
  • Describe how teachers will help students develop those skills using high-quality curriculum and instruction
  • Share specific strategies parents can use at home
  • Explain how teachers and parents will communicate about student progress
  • Describe opportunities for parents to volunteer, observe, and participate in the classroom
Jointly Developed 

The parents, students and staff of Doerun Elementary partnered together to develop this school-family compact for achievement. Teachers suggested home learning strategies, parents added input about the types of support they needed, and students told us what would help them learn. Parents are encouraged to attend annual revision meetings held each spring to review the compact and make suggestions based on student needs and school improvement goals. Parents are also encouraged to participate in the annual Title I parent survey that is also used as a tool to collect parent feedback regarding the current Title I programs and policies.

To understand how working together can benefit your child, it is first important to understand the district's and school's goals for student academic achievement.

 

Colquitt County School System Goals:
  • Increase the percentage of Level 3 & 4 on GMAS for each tested subject by 3% for each subgroup to approach the state average by the end of the 2022-2023 school year.
  • Using FY22 district attendance data, the district will decrease the percentage of students who miss more than 10 days of school by three percentage points.

 

Doerun Elementary Goals:
  • By the end of SY23, Doerun Elementary will increase the percentage of students with proficient scores by 5% on the math portion of the GMAS End of Grade Assessment.
  • By the end of SY23, Doerun Elementary will improve the number of students increasing a performance level (red to yellow or yellow to green) from the beginning of the year to the end.

 

Our school will focus on the following areas: 
  • K-2 will work on addition and subtraction fluency with accuracy.
  • 3-5 will work on multiplication and division fluency with accuracy and work on fractions.
  • All students will work to increase reading fluency and comprehension.
  • To help your child meet the district and school goals, the school, you, and your child will work together to achieve the following:
