The Purpose of this compact is to outline how Esperanza parents, students, and staff will share the responsibility for student achievement & how parents and teachers will communicate.

Esperanza will carry out programs and procedures in accordance with the following definition of parent and family engagement:

Parent and family engagement means the participation of parents and families in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning. This includes ensuring that parents and families play an integral role in their child’s learning, are encouraged to be actively involved and full partners in their child’s education, and are included in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.

Esperanza will hold a Fall Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting to review the 90 Day school wide plan, parent and family engagement plan, share the Title I requirements, and the rights of parents to be involved.

Esperanza will hold a Spring Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting to evaluate parent and family engagement policies, develop a written policy, and create a compact that outlines how parents, students, and staff will share the responsibility for improving achievement and how parents and teachers will communicate. 

Esperanza will take the following actions to build schools’ and parents’ capacity for strong parent and family engagement to support a partnership to improve student achievement.
