1. Does Compass provide bus transportation?
Answer: Yes, however, our boundaries are much larger than traditional school boundaries, therefore, we have fewer group stops which may require you to drive to the closest stop.
2. Do you provide busing for kindergarten students?
Answer: Yes, however it is only one way. Morning students are picked up for school, but parents are responsible for picking them up from school. Afternoon students are dropped off by their parents and then bus transportation is available to take them home.
3. How do I get my student into Compass?
Answer : As a charter school, Compass must follow the state law of holding a lottery for student enrollment. If you are interested in enrolling then you must complete an application to enter the lottery or to go on the waiting list if the lottery has already been held.
4. What are my chances of getting in?
Answer: You always improve your chances when you submit an application. Chances are all based on the number of openings available in that class, the number of siblings, the number of applicants for the grade level, etc. There are many things that play into what your “chances” are for enrollment. All those things are out of your control and vary year to year and grade to grade. The only thing you can control is the actual submission of an application. Don’t let the idea that you won’t have a chance deter you from applying!
5. Do you have any sports programs?
Answer: Yes. We do provide sports opportunities for our middle school and high school students. Due to the limitations of the facility, we are only able to provide girls volleyball, boys & girls basketball, cross-country and track. We play in the Western Idaho Conference and are members of the Idaho High School Athletic Association as a 1A school. We encourage our students who are interested in other sports to contact their “assigned” public school to ask about their sports program. Several Compass families have been successful with this approach.
