    Title I: Family - School Compact for Achievement for Online Elementary School:  2022-2023

     

    What is a Family-School Compact?

     

    A Family-School Compact for Achievement is an agreement that families, students, and teachers develop together. It explains how families and teachers will work together to make sure all students get the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade-level standards

     

     

    Jointly Developed with Families

     

    Throughout the 2022-2023 school year, families at SPPS Online School will be asked to provide feedback to develop this Compact for Achievement jointly. Schoolwide meetings will be held throughout the year where SPPS Online School Teachers and Staff will gather feedback, and the compact will be updated annually to reflect stakeholder feedback. Families are welcome to contribute comments at any time. 

     

    For more information on the SPPS Online School compact or to provide feedback, please contact: John Osorio at john.osorio@spps.org or at 651-744-6368

     

    Online School Students                                    

    SPPS Online School students will join staff and their families to develop ideas about how they can succeed in school and exceed socially and academically.

    Students will be asked throughout the 2022-2023 school year to provide feedback on how we can work together as a school community to make connections between learning at home and school.

    SPPS Online School is committed to communicating regularly with families about children’s learning. Some of the ways you can expect us to communicate are:

    • Regular updates to the school website.
    • Parent/Teacher/Student conference
    • Phone calls, emails, written letters, notes and flyers
    • Goal of a 24-hour response time to phone calls and voicemail messages during scheduled school days. Calls made on Friday will be returned on Monday.
    • Seesaw: Kindergarten through third grade teachers use this app for instructional purposes and to share student work with families
    • Schoology: Fourth through 12th grade teachers use this app for instructional purposes. Parents have access to see their child’s work

Families are required to have an email address and share it with the school since OLS communicates digitally. Families should check their email frequently and contact the school office if their email address changes.
    • Automated Phone Calls via Blackboard Connect: used as a way to make important school-related announcements.
    • Text Messages: used to invite families to participate in school events and activities, as well as for general announcements and reminders. To ensure important information is received, families should contact the school office if their phone number changes; teachers are encouraged to use apps for communicating with families via text.
    • Family-School Compact for Achievement: The compact is an agreement that parents, students, and teachers develop together. It explains how parents and teachers will work together to make sure all students are successful and receive the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade-level standards.
