In order for the successful education of each student, the support of the pupil, parents and teacher is essential. At the beginning of the school year, introduce this Learning Contract to your class. After discussing the importance of each statement, ask the students to promise their cooperation to the contract and ask them to sign the contract. Review your section and provide your signature. Then during parent conferences, or by sending the contract home (make copies!), have the parents sign their section. Maintain a copy for yourself in your students' files, and refer to this contract when classroom rules are broken, and assign appropriate consequences. You amy want to post a corresponding poster in your classroom for reference as well.
This goes well with my Parent-Teacher Conference Packet
