COMPASS Partners

COMPASS Partners are businesses, organizations, churches, and individuals who give the gifts of time, money, and/or materials to a school or schools in Sumner County through a formalized partnershimultiple schools, or even system-wide. Partners also have the choice of choosing a program or topic and taking that to the age-appropriate schools as a guest speaker or workshop facilitator. If an individual, group, or business has the desire to directly impact our public school system, COMPASS will find a fit. Thus far for the 2006-2007 school year, we have received full or partial activity reports from just less than half our Partners. These reports reveal 661.5 volunteer hours and $65,482 given to our schools through these Partnerships.

Population(s) Served

Tennessee Scholars is an initiative sponsored by the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry, business and industry of Tennessee, policy makers, teachers, and parents. It is endorsed by the Governor of Tennessee and many other workforce development, and economic development entities as an exemplary educational and workforce development initiative that has proven to be successful. It is part of the National State Scholars Initiative that includes over 20 states. The purpose of the initiative is to increase the percentage of students graduating from high school with a rigorous, defined academic course of study sufficient to prepare them for college, the workforce, or the military. Coursework, GPA, attendance and community service are requirements of the program. This year, Sumner County Schools graduated 22 TN Scholars, each of whom was offered a full scholarship to Volunteer State Community College.

Population(s) Served

School Improvement Awards are given to teachers in $500 increments based on project proposals submitted by the teacher. Cooperative proposals can be written by 2 or more teachers for an award of $2,500. For the 2007-08 school year COMPASS will award $20,000 to teachers through these awards. The awards are sponsored by the Hendersonville Chamber of Commerce Foundation, thus only Hendersonville area teachers are eligible. We are looking for sponsors to help us take these awards county-wide.

Population(s) Served

The COMPASS Stocks At School program brings financial instruction to the classroom of 5th graders by a volunteer from the field of finance. COMPASS supplies the volunteer with 11-week curriculum guide that can be modified based on the interests of the volunteer and the school. The program is centered on investment strategies and the stock market but incorporates math, history, reading, social studies, and current events. Topics covered each week are expansions of subject matter listed in the state curriculum standards.
