Welcome to Compass for Success' Website
Compass for Success is a collaboration of school boards working together to build capacity to use data to improve student achievement. It represents the collective development of technologies within a framework focused on research-driven data to allow Teachers, Superintendents, Directors and Principals the ability to see and use the data in a way that will help students succeed.
This updated website provides support and expertise to participating school boards to enhance their use of the data provided by the Compass for Success tools. The Compass for Success philosophy is to provide not just the technology but the strategies to inform school planning and the building of capacity in the use of data to actually impact what is happening in a classroom, in a school and at the board level.
This website is a key component of that philosophy to provide and share strategies. Within it you will find samples of our:
- Data warehouse and business intelligence solution for school administrators and teachers;
- Technology for teachers to support an assessment for learning approach for students;
- Tools to support school board initiatives such as School Improvement Planning, Board Improvement Planning, School Effectiveness Framework;
- Web-based training site to support a blended learning strategy to build data capacity for school administrators.
