Title I School-Home Compact

Research tells us that when a family works with their child on schoolwork and becomes involved in their child’s learning, their child is more likely to succeed academically. Bainbridge Elementary provides an environment that is inducive to learning for ALL students regardless of abilities. The school is a community center where ALL adults are a welcome part of the educational process and have a role in their child’s success.

The opportunity to discuss this compact will be available at least once a year. As a school we encourage you to come in and participate in your child’s class and on educational field trips. The following are agreed upon roles and responsibilities that we as partners will carry out to support student success in school and in life.
