Title I ESSA Project Appleseed

The Parent Engagement Pledge is a powerful tool for schools to improve student outcomes and create a more positive school culture. Research from the United States Department of Educationthe Prospects Study, has shown that learning compacts like the Parent Engagement Pledge have the greatest impact on homework completion, school climate, student discipline, and reading at home. This is because the pledge is specifically designed to engage parents and families as partners in the education of their children.

The Parent Engagement Pledge is unique in that it is the most widely employed Title I compact in the nation. The pledge creates a sense of shared responsibility between parents, teachers, and the school community, encouraging everyone to work together to support students.

Additionally, the Prospects Study found that Title I principals who used the Parent Engagement Pledge rated it as helpful in achieving different types of school and family outcomes. It is particularly effective in high-poverty schools where it has been found to be most helpful. Furthermore, data from the The study found that when a learning compact is effectively implemented, positive student outcomes, including higher achievement, result.

In the fifth school, the compact served as the primary catalyst for more intensive involvement by 19 families.

In conclusion, the Parent Engagement Pledge is a powerful tool for schools to improve student outcomes, create a more positive school culture, and engage parents and families as partners in the education of their children. It is particularly effective in high-poverty
