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 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;

    • Encourage the love of lifelong learning.

    The Compact Committee revised the Compact for Learning: District Plan to better align with our ongoing mission. It was re-certified by the Board on September 1, 2020.
