DYERSBURG HIGH SCHOOL

2020-21 School-Parent Compact

What is a School-Parent Compact?

It is a written commitment describing how members of the school community-families, teachers, principal, and students-agree to share responsibility for student learning.  The compact helps bridge the learning connection between school and home.

  • Families can provide feedback on the compact at any time.  Please call Kamela Rogers at 731-286-3630 or visit our website at www.dyersburgcityschools.org

Our Goals for Student Achievement

District Goals

  • Maintain or improve the percentile rank of those scoring on-track or mastered in Math and Language Arts.

  • Increase the percentage of students meeting all four college-readiness benchmarks on the ACT.

  • Promote a safe, positive learning environment which limits lost instructional time.

School Goals
