District-Wide Compact Committee



    In March 1991, under the direction of Thomas Sobol, the New York State Board of Regents officially adopted A New Compact for Learning: Improving Public Elementary, Middle, and Secondary Education Results. As a comprehensive strategy for improving public education, it sets forth a series of principles and mandates a process by which each district in the State will develop a plan for site-based management.


    Historically, Scarsdale has provided a myriad of opportunities for constituent groups to participate in nearly all aspects of decision-making in the schools and the District.  The Compact extends to staff, parents, and the community an increased role in the educational decision-making by focusing on shared goals and practices and resource sharing with a singular goal of healthy, happy, and engaged students.



    Scarsdale’s Compact Planning Committee endorses the principles set forth in the Compact:

    • Recognize that all children can learn.

    • Attend to the needs of the whole child.

    • Promote non sibi in word and deed.

    • Expect local, national, and global citizenship.

    • Be good stewards and caretakers of our schools, community, and planet.

    • Share best ideas and practices with one another.

    • Provide the means and resources to achieve these goals.


    Please be advised that the Compact Committee is in the process of revising the plan to better align with our ongoing mission.
