Oak Park High/Oak Park Freshman Institute School Compact
Quality Learning for Every Student, Every Day
Dear Parent/Guardian,
We believe that students succeed most when teachers, students, and parents all work together. We highly value your role in
helping to ensure that our students achieve high academic standards, in order to be ready for college & careers. This compact is
an agreement between the school, students, and parents, in order to have a common understanding of the responsibilities of all
partners who are involved in student success.
Teachers:
I understand the importance of a quality education for every student, and my role as a teacher and professional role model.
Therefore, I agree to carry out the following responsibilities to the best of my ability:
1. Provide high quality instruction in a safe, caring, supportive, and effective learning environment.
2. Provide on-going communication with parents and students, including regular phone calls, e-mails, and
Parent Conferences.
3. Continuously update progress on student learning in Parent/Student Connect.
4. Make every effort to be aware of your child’s needs.

Students:
I understand that I am responsible for my own education. The hard work I do now will help me achieve my goals, as I prepare
for college and a career. I know that my teachers and parents/guardians are here to support me, but I am ultimately accountable
for my learning and performance. Therefore, I agree to do the following:
1. To attend school every day and arrive to all of my classes on time, prepared to learn.
2. Respect myself, respect others, and respect the school community.
3. Hold myself accountable for my own actions.
4. Do my best in every class, every day, and ask for help when I am struggling.
5. Regularly check my own academic progress using Student Connect.

Attention Teachers/Parents/Students,
As you may already know, Oak Park High School is putting forth plans to become a Title I school.
We are currently taking the steps necessary to become a Title I school, in order to obtain support to
continue providing high quality learning experiences for our students.
A part of that process requires us to develop a Parent Compact, which is an agreement between the
school, the parents, and the students, that explains how everyone can work together to support
students meeting high academic standards of learning.
Your input in this process is needed!
This is a draft version of the School Compact, developed by our Title I Team, using data &
feedback from teachers, parents, and students. We now need your feedback on this draft. In the
space provided below, please give us your opinion of this draft. Feel free to make comments
regarding what you would like to see changed, added, or deleted from this Compact. Based on your
feedback, a final draft will be developed and published for use during the 2013-2014 school year,
PLEASE WRITE YOUR COMMENTS HERE
