• Family School Compact School Year 2023-2024

    [Louisa May Alcott], scholars participating in the Title I, Part A program, and their families, agree that this compact outline how the family, the entire school staff and the scholar will share the responsibility for improved scholar academic achievement as well as describe how the school and families will build and develop a partnership that will help scholars achieve the state’s high standards.

    School Goals

    At Louisa May Alcott, we provide high quality instruction using Blended Learning, where students can work as a whole group, small group and independently while using technology. Students have the opportunity to utilize the EL (literacy) and Eureka math curriculums. Waterford, Zearn, Edmentum, and AR are programs to support students individualized learning. Parent teacher conferences will be held in according to the academic calendar for CMSD. Parents can also schedule conferences with teachers as needed. The Parent Advisory Committee will meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month to coordinate events that provide Alcott families the opportunity to stay involved with the school community.
