The proceeding link is the place to view your students' academic progress in literacy and math for the computer portion of their day (Foundations) if they are a student in 3rd - 6th grades.  As a parent, you are not required to login to view your child’s progress, however, we have found that students are more successful when their parents are involved and aware of what their children are doing at school.

This portal is for parent access to view student progress.  It is NOT a place for your child to work from home.  If you would like your child to log in to work from home have them log in through clever.

Common Questions & Answers

Q: As a parent, how often should I be logging into Compass?

A: You are not required to log in at any time to view your child’s progress.  However, we have found that students are more successful when their parents are involved and aware of what their children are doing at school.  This portal has been made available to you to use as often or as little as you like.  Additionally, your child’s mentor teacher will provide you with updates regarding your child’s progress at parent teacher conferences and other times at your request.

Q: Should I be holding my child accountable for his/her progress in Compass?

A: You child’s mentor teacher will be meeting with your child on a regular basis to review progress, set goals, and hold accountable as needed.  Parents are not required to hold their children accountable for their progress in Compass.  However, students whose parents are involved and aware of what they are doing at school tend to be more successful.

Q: How can I tell if my child is progressing at the correct speed and not falling behind?

A: FDA’s curriculum is designed to let children move at their own pace.  There is not a way to technically be “ahead” or “behind”.  Regular communication with your child’s mentor teacher and reviewing reports from your child’s weekly interviews can help you to know if your child is using his/her time wisely at school and if his/her progress is developmentally appropriate.

Q: If my child did poorly on a quiz, completed a lesson on that topic, and then took the quiz again and passed, does this mean they need extra help at home?

A: No.  Each unit of study is comprised of a pre-quiz, study material, and a post quiz.  If your student is working at the level that is best for him/her, he/she will likely not pass the pre-quiz, but should do much better on the post-quiz (after the material has been presented).  Pre-quizzes are not counted against students, but instead allow students to skip lessons if they demonstrate a knowledge of the material before it is presented.

Q: My child was working several grades ahead last year.  How do I help them skip ahead to the place they last left off?

A: As a K-6 public charter school, we are required to present each student with core curriculum that is required for their current grade level. If the student passes the pre-quiz for any topic, they will automatically skip the lesson material for that topic and move on to the next one.  Once your student has either completed or tested out of all of the materials for their current grade level the mentor teacher in collaboration with the student and parent will assign curriculum above their current grade level.
