RES Compact 2017

 

Revised September 1, 2017

School-Parent Compact

Royston Elementary School

2017-2018

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Royston Elementary School students participating in the Title I, Part A program, and their families, agree that this compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement as well as describes how the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State's high standards.

JOINTLY DEVELOPED
The parents, students, and staff of Royston Elementary School partnered together to develop this school-parent 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 in the spring each year 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 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 and school goals for student academic achievement. 

FRANKLIN COUNTY GOALS:
·      FCSS will increase percent of students scoring at performance levels 3 & 4 on Milestones EOG and EOC.  The percentage of student coring at levels 3 & 4 should increase by 2% per year over the next three years.

·      FCSS will decrease in discipline incidences across all grade levels and schools. The number of discipline incidences will decrease by 3% per year over the next three years.

ROYSTON ELEMENTARY GOALS:

  •  RES will increase the percentage of students scoring a level 3 or level 4 on the GA Milestones ELA section from 35% to 50% by focusing on students' written responses to narrative text.
  • RES will increase the percentage of students scoring a level 3 or level 4 on the GA Milestones Math section from 41% to 60% by focusing on number sense and problem solving.
  • RES will reduce the number of behavior referrals from 314 (2016-2017) to 250 this year by continuing our implementation of PBIS and 7Mindsets.

To help your child meet the district and school goals, the school, you, and your child will work together by:
