The Parental Involvement Pledgetm

AS A PARENT, GRANDPARENT, OR CARING ADULTtm I hereby give my pledge of commitment to help our community’s children achieve a truly independent future. My declaration of responsibility and commitment to my public schools is stated in these five self-evident truths that echo the words of President Woodrow Wilson:

  • As Americans, we are the owners of the public school system.

  • As owners, we bear a responsibility to participate in the system.

  • Accountability for our public schools, their safety, and its employees and its funding rests with us and the rest of the system’s owners.

  • Our children’s future depends on the improvement of the public schools.

  • And this improvement depends on our participation.


Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Title I Learning Compact Section 1116, (d) Shared Responsibilities For High Student Academic Achievement 

THEREFORE AS A PARENT,GRANDPARENT, OR CARING ADULTtm, I take personal responsibility for my child’s safety and education and the safety and education of the children in this community.

  • I pledge to volunteer a minimum of five hours of my time to my public schools each semester.

  • I pledge to spend a minimum of fifteen minutes each school night reading with my child or we will work together on homework and enrichment activities.
