ABOUT DORMAN ELEMENTARY
Dorman School feels strongly that a relationship with parents helps improve a student's academic achievement and that the school and parents can build and develop a partnership to help children achieve this goal.
Students served under Title 1 (a federal program that provides funds to improve academic achievement) must review, sign and return the School/Parent Compacts. All Dorman students are served under Title 1.
This School/Parent compact outlines what everyone's responsibility is to ensure that your child/children succeed. The school has a responsibility, the child has a responsibility and the parent has a responsibility. We all need to work together; the compact helps that happen. Review with your child/children the commitment page of the School/Parent compact, sign and return it to school. If you would like a copy for yourself please let us know.
