The benefits of language immersion programs are incomparable. That does not make them any easier to start or maintain.
At Compass Edvantage, we have more than a decade of experience designing, implementing, and supporting dual immersion programs.
We know what it's like being the lone administrator in charge of the program or a building principal who got put in charge. We know the impact of politics and local context. We also know the power of these programs and are passionate about helping them be as successful as they can be.
Whether you're thinking about starting a program, entering the middle or high school for the first time, or anything in-between. We're here to help.
Strategic Design & Leadership Coaching
Unsure how to move forward? Do you need outside expertise? Implementing and managing dual immersion programs is a complex process that touches every aspect of schooling. Its political context makes this even more challenging.
Our strategic design and leadership coaching services range from monthly virtual problem-solving sessions to guided strategic planning.
Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment
The core of all successful schooling is what takes place in the classroom. Immersion programs require specialized instructional practices. Curriculum must be carefully sequenced across both languages and over the course of the program.
We offer a full range of services to support your curriculum, instruction, and assessment needs--everything from materials adoption to curriculum mapping and proficiency-based assessment to teacher professional learning.
An Outside Perspective
We know what it's like to try and be a "prophet" in your own land. We also know what it's like to have a dual immersion program "assigned" to you, even when that isn't your background.
We can provide a full external review that provides the data you need to advocate for your program. Need help advocating? We have years of experience giving school board, staff, and community presentations.
The professionalism, knowledge base, open communication and timely development of a new program illustrated by CE was amazing! We will continue to use them as a resource for the district in the future and would recommend their services to any other district.
