Title I parents and Cranberry Station Elementary staff work together to create a Home-School learning compact. This compact outlines how parents, staff, and students will work together to improve student achievement and create meaningful partnerships.

2023-2024 Home - School Learning Compact


Each year, the Parent and Family Engagement Plan is revised based upon input from parents and caregivers during Parent Focus Groups, family engagement events, surveys and electronic communication, and individual parent meetings. The parents, families and staff of CSE work closely together to review and revise the goals and activities for each school year. These goals and activities align with the Carroll County Public Schools Family Engagement Policy. They are categorized into six types of parent involvement:

1. Communication

2. Parenting/Family Engagement

3. Student Learning

4. Volunteering

5. Decision Making and Advocacy

6. Collaborating with Community
