On Monday, November 6th, at the Fort Collins Music District, Compass held a community gathering of enrolled students, parents, family members and members of the Compass design team and Governing Board members. It was an incredible opportunity for families to ask questions of the Compass team, share thoughts and ideas for the school opening and for students to engage in Compass-style learning. Over 30 prospective students worked with staff members to explore design and creative thinking and they came away really excited about what school could look like.
The Q/A was thoughtful and too short (we had so many good questions, we didn’t get to all of them). We answered questions about everything from our leadership and staff qualifications to our curriculum model. We provided examples of student projects for different levels of students, discussed our fundraising (we just got a $1 million dollar donation!), and began the work of getting our families involved in our school design. It was an amazing night and we look forward to doing it again soon.
We’ll announce other events soon. Come back to find out more.
