MIRA MESA HIGH SCHOOL

School-Parent Compact 2019-2020

Updated May 2019



School-Parent Compact 

Mira Mesa High School distributes to parents of Title I students a school-parent compact. The compact, (which has been jointly developed with parents, outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students) will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. It describes specific ways the school and families will partner to help children achieve the State’s high academic standards. It addresses the following legally required items, as well as other items suggested by parents of Title I students. 

  • The school’s responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction. 

  • The ways parents will be responsible for supporting their children’s learning.

  • The importance of ongoing communication between parents and teachers through parent-teacher contact; frequent reports on student progress; access to staff; opportunities for parents to volunteer and participate in their child’s class; and opportunities to observe classroom activities.

This compact is created with parents, students, and staff input at SSC meetings. 


Building Capacity for Involvement 

Mira Mesa High School engages Title I parents in meaningful interactions with the school. It supports a partnership among staff, parents, and the community to improve student academic achievement. To help reach these goals, the school has established the following practices. 

∙ The school provides Title I parents with assistance in understanding the State’s academic content standards, assessments, and how to monitor and improve the achievement of their children.  Mira Mesa High School holds regular meetings such as Principal Chats, Fall Open House, Dive into High School, 8th grade Open House.  Information regarding these events are sent home in a variety of avenues and posted to the school website.  The school also provides information and data to parents via report cards, student handbook, and PowerSchool Parent Portal. 

∙ The school provides Title I parents with materials and training to help them work with their children to improve achievement.  Mira Mesa provides numerous opportunities for parents to get involved and learn about the curriculum, assessments, data, and progress through SGT, SSC, Open House, and Cluster Meetings.

∙ With the assistance of Title I parents, the school educates staff members about the value of parent contributions, and in how to work with parents as equal partners.  Staff at Mira Mesa High School value parent involvement and the commitment to their students’ education.  Staff will make time in their day or after school to meet with a family to discuss how to best support the needs of their child. 

∙ The school coordinates and integrates the Title I parental involvement program with other programs, and conducts other activities, such as parent resource centers to encourage and support parents in more fully participating in the education of their children.  Mira Mesa High School believes in input from all committees and subgroups, such as Principal Chats, School Site Governance, School Site Council, Cluster meetings, and Instructional Leadership Team.

∙ The school staff distributes information related to school and parent programs, meetings, and other activities to Title I parents in a format and language that parents understand. School personnel is committed to sending messages and written communication in a family’s native language.

∙ The school provides support for parental involvement activities requested by Title I parents.  Mira Mesa High School offers activities such as information nights, College Fairs, 8th grade Open House, and award nights.
