Preparing for Registration

Welcome to Compass Academy's Need to Know space. Anytime we have new information to share, it will be updated here for parents, guardians, and students. Registration is August 14 (8 am-5 pm) or August 15 (10 am-7 pm).

Today's Need to Know: Bus transportation - Compass Academy students ride their neighborhood buses to Skyline High School or Idaho Falls High School. After arriving, find the Compass shuttle bus that will bring you to school in time for first period. If your last class ends at 3:00 pm, a bus will take you back to your home high school at around 3:15. If your last class ends at 4:00 pm, a bus will drop you off in your neighborhood within walking distance of home. This bus leaves Compass around 4:10 pm. It is important that you sign up for the 4:00 bus during registration if you plan to use it. Zero period, which begins at 8:00 am, requires that you have a ride or drive to school yourself. No busing is available for 8:00 am classes.

See you at registration on August 14 (8-5 pm) or 15 (10-7 pm). Remember, to avoid long lines, visit us on Day 2 of registration or try stopping by later in the day.

How to Succeed in High School

This fall, I begin my 28th year in education and my sixth year in administration as the new Director of Compass Academy. From 2008-2013, I served as vice principal at Eagle Rock Middle School.

My daughters are both adults. Sheridan, 22, graduated from Skyline High School in 2014 and Arizona State University in 2017. Gibson, 19, graduated from Compass Academy in 2017 and will start classes at College of Eastern Idaho this fall. My husband Steve just finished his 21st year at Harris Publishing where he is the editor of Idaho Falls magazine.

You and I will work together for the next 1 to 4 years. I look forward to learning more about your hopes and dreams for your student. My beliefs as a parent and educator are few but important, and I want to share them from the beginning. To learn, students must be present. In classes, with collaborative teams, during facilitator office hours, and in our tutoring center.To grow, students must complete tasks and meet deadlines. Assignments submitted on…
