Summer COMPASS After School Program
The COMPASS after school program (Community of Many Providing After School Success) had a very busy and exciting summer! Students from Fulton, Sable, Vaughn and Kenton Elementary Schools and students from Aurora Hills Middle School participated in fun activities online with APS teachers and City of Aurora enrichment providers.
The program was structured to allow for up to 3 hours per day of online learning. Thanks to generous grants from 21st Century Community Learning Centers and Tony Grampsas Youth Services, students were able to receive at-home learning kits to keep them entertained and educated over the summer months.
This program is typically done in person but the COMPASS leadership team quickly assembled an engaging and exciting online learning platform for students to still participate over the summer. Feedback from parents was very positive and many families were thankful to have a way for students to still engage with friends and familiar faces after school ended.
This program has been a long-standing collaboration between Aurora Public Schools and the City of Aurora. The purpose of the COMPASS Program is to provide students and families with quality, structured, supervised after-school programs that make significant strides to engaging students academically, socially and physically. APS is grateful for the partnership in an effort to help every student shape a successful future.
