ASHS School Parent Compact

School-Parent Compact

Americus-Sumter High School South


Dear Parent/Guardian,

Americus-Sumter County High School South students participating in the Title I, Part A program, and their families, agree that this compact outlines how the parents, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement as well as describes how school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State's high standards.

To understand how working together can benefit your child, it is first important to understand our district's and school's goals for student academic achievement.

SCS's District Goals: To graduate all students

English Goals by the end of 2014-2015 school year:

83% of all students in an English/Language Arts (ELA) course will pass as measured by the Georgia Milestone Assessment.

The course pass rate for Analytic Geometry will increase from 70% to 85% as measured by the Georgia Milestone Assessment.

By the end of 2014-2015 school year, 80% of all students enrolled in a Math course will meet or exceed as measured by the Georgia Milestone Assessment.

To help your child meet the district and school goals, the school, you, and your child will work together to:
