On Friday 10th June, our teachers and Education Support staff will be very busy participating
in their third pupil free day for this year. The program will focus on our
assessment processes in a variety of domains. This term staff has started
to use the Compass platform for entering student attendance with
electronic devices and sharing anecdotal notes. It is anticipated
student reports will be accessed online within 18 months. Compass can
be explored on the web for detailed information about how it can
benefit schools and parents.
Below I have attached a brief descriptionCompass was built and launched in 2010 as a true software-as-a-service
solution for schools. Compass is distributed by JDLF International Pty Ltd with offices in Victoria
and San Francisco. Compass is the emerging leader in online school and student
management in Australia, providing schools with immediate, on-demand access to a student
performance, wellbeing and much more. In late 2010, we launched CompassPay, our
merchant services division focused on incorporating streamline payment options to parents
and students.
In November 2014 JDLF International Pty Ltd moved head offices to 74 Doncaster Road,
Balwyn North, which was opened by the Hon. David Hodgett, Minister for Major Projects,
Manufacturing and Ports. As part of this relocation, we took the opportunity to rename our
organisation to Compass Education. This name change was made to reflect the focus of our
organisation in alignment with our product.
