It is important for the school and parents to work together and share responsibility for high student performance. One of the best examples of this commitment is the Student-Parent compact. This compact lays out the responsibilities of families, students, and school staff to make sure that students meet the standards. It defines the goals of the partnership to improve student achievement and how parents, school staff, and students will work together to help students achieve high standards. Additionally, the compact translates the policies and goals of the school into action — by describing what teachers, administrators, students, and parents will do to meet the goals and standards.
There are approximately over 40% of South Carolina students attending Title I schools. These Title 1 schools are in low-income areas, or their main focus is to improve testing scores. The federal dollars are funneled to schools for additional teachers and programs to raise student achievement.
