Title I School Family Engagement Policy 2019-2020

Revised: 2/6/19

Title I Parent Compact

The Title I Parent Compact is an agreement developed by staff and parents to identify the expectations for students, parents, teachers, and administrators to fulfill as a member of the team who is working together to help students succeed.

  • Parents are given a copy of the compact to sign during registration.
  • Teachers review the compact with parents during parent/teacher meetings as needed.
  • An additional copy of the compact is sent home to parents soon after the beginning of the school year.
  • We meet with parents during the school year to review and revise our Title I Parent Involvement Policy and Parent Compact. 
  • We welcome your involvement!

Two-Way Communication

By working and communicating with each other, we help our students succeed. It is vital to establish two-way communication between our families and school. We communicate in a variety of ways, which include:


One of the most important things can do to help our students, is work together as a TEAM. Teachers will provide you with information about your child’s assessments and progress in school. Teachers welcome your feedback how they can best meet the needs your child. We welcome parent volunteers! Teachers will provide training for
volunteers in our classrooms and library. We also need help on field and GBES PTA. For more information, please contact, Kaitlyn Yazzie, secretary. We look forward to your involvement at Governor Bent Elementary School.


Our partnership with community programs that support our student & family activities include: Presbyterian’s Day of Service, Sandia National Labs, Explora Museum, Albuquerque ALOFT, Literacy Room, Rock Your Mocs, CSI after school clubs and RGEC. We will also provide families with community resources.
