Learning Improvement Compact
Oak Grove Elementary School Responsibilities
As a Title One School, Oak Grove Elementary will provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the children to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards as follows:
Students identified for specific interventions will meet daily for 40 minutes with the Intervention teacher. A full day tuition-based Kindergarten is offered. In some cases of hardship, we have provided scholarships for a few students each year. The skills emphasized will be determined by the district essential learnings for each grade level as well as by the results of formative assessments and teacher observations. MTSS (Multi-tiered Systems of Support) model will be implemented to insure that instruction in core and intervention is targeted and effective.
Hold parent-teacher conferences during which this compact will be discussed as it relates to the individual child’s achievement:
Parent-Teacher Conferences are held October 14, October 15, 2015, March 9 and March 10, 2016. The Title One teacher will participate in the conference set up through the regular classroom teacher unless the parent requests an additional conference to discuss their child’s progress in the Title One program.
Provide parents with frequent reports on their children’s progress:
Oak Grove School will send Report Cards home with students four times a year. Grading periods end October 15, 2015, December 18, 2015, March 4, 2016 and May 25, 2016. Included with the Report card is a Title One Quarterly Report to further clarify student progress.
Provide parents reasonable access to staff:
Oak Grove staff is available for consultation before school daily (7:30-7:55) and after school (3:05-3:30) except on Wednesday. Parents may visit with teachers in their classrooms. To call for consultation with teachers or to set up an appointment, call Oak Grove at 249-6867.
Provide parents opportunities to volunteer and participate in their child’s class, and to observe classroom activities:
Parents are invited to observe their children participating in Title One Activities in the Title One room at any time. No advance notice is necessary. Parents are invited to volunteer at school or in various classrooms.

Seeing that my child is punctual and attends school regularly.
Supporting the school in its effort to maintain proper discipline.
Reading with my child and let my child see me read.
Setting aside a daily, quiet time to reinforce class work and complete homework.

Serving to the extent possible on parent advisory groups
