River City Early College High School
Title 1 Program
Each school receiving funds under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) must develop a written school-parent compact for all children participating in Title I. The following school-parent compact outlines how parents, the school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement.
- Create a welcoming and positive learning environment for students and parents.
- Involve parents in the planning, review, and improvement of the school's Title I program.
- Hold parent-teacher conferences in the fall of each year to meet with parents to discuss eachchild's successes and areas for improvement.
- Provide parents with frequent feedback on their child's progress. Parents may access Progress Book at any time and the school will provide quarterly interim reports and a grade card report each nine weeks.
- Provide opportunities for parents to participate in decisions about the education of their child.
- Provide multiple opportunities for parents to volunteer and/or participate in their child's classroom activities.

- Monitor the amount of screen time (television, phone, computer, etc.) that my child has.
- Ensure my child gets a good night's sleep each night.
- Attend parent/teacher conferences, parent school, evening activities, and call the school as needed to monitor my child's progress.
- Check with my child daily for information sent home from school (classroom newsletter, homework log, behavior log, notes from the teacher, etc.), read it and respond, if necessary.
- Come to school each day ready to learn and do your best!
- Complete homework every day and ask for help if I don't understand something.
- Read every day (20-30 minutes) outside of school time.
- Give my parents all daily information sent home from school (classroom newsletter, homework log, behavior log, notes from the teacher, etc.), read it and respond, if necessary.
