All parents, guardians, students and teachers in the Dromana College community have a personal secure online Compass account. By regularly logging in to Compass you will be kept well informed about what is happening at Dromana College including information specific to your child. We recommend you check your Compass portal once per day so that you do not miss any important information.
Through their account, parents and guardians receive important communications, are kept informed about their child's learning progress, are provided with access to their child's attendance history, can approve absences online, manage excursion permission forms, make school payments, access their students’ school reports and access many other tools and information related to their child's schooling. An alert will appear in your Compass Dashboard when actions are required. Parents can access Compass at their convenience via any computer or mobile phone that is connected to the Internet.
By logging in to their portal, parents will be able to:
- update their contact details
- access information on upcoming events
- manage their Compass password
- view teacher comments on work submitted by their child
- view their child’s timetable
- view up to date lesson plans and school attendance information
- enter upcoming absences or approve past absences for their child
- receive SMS alerts of absences
- book Parent/Student/Teacher interviews
- communicate with their child’s teachers
- approve and pay for upcoming excursions
- payment of schools fees, and contributions
- access their child’s progress reports and semester reports
The school will provide parents with their personal login details to access the secure Compass portal. On their first login parents are required to verify their details and to change the password provided. Parents should not share their login details with anyone. This includes their own children, who are issued with their own login.
Parent Teacher Interviews
There are opportunities for parent, student and teacher interviews following the distribution of progress reports. These are important occasions in the progress of students and in maintaining effective communication between the school and home. All parents and students are encouraged to attend.
Parents are also encouraged to meet with their child’s teacher outside of the scheduled Parent Teacher interviews to discuss individual learning goals and support for their child.
