By April 24, 2019 News

Thousand Oaks, CA – Compass Charter Schools (CCS) announced today that they have been recognized for exceptional school leadership by Charter School Capital as a part of its annual Charter School Honor Roll.

Charter School Honor Roll is an annual program that celebrates charter schools that go above and beyond, highlighting the outstanding work they do for their scholars. Schools can be nominated for categories such as school growth, student achievement, community service, school leadership, and positive school climate.

“We work very hard to not only provide great leadership to our Compass community, but to also encourage every stakeholder, from scholars, to parents, to staff and beyond, to be leaders as well,” said J.J. Lewis, CCS Superintendent & CEO. “On behalf of our entire Compass community, we are honored to be recognized by Charter School Capital.”

CCS is an Energy Bus school, a program dedicated to leadership development. As an Energy Bus school, Compass encourages staff, scholars, and parents to be the driver of their own buses and to fuel other’s rides to create a strong, positive school culture. To keep positivity and individual leadership at the forefront of each day, the CCS community is encouraged to follow the 7 Energy Bus Principles.  These principles offer focus to topics like creating a positive vision, transforming negativity, loving your passengers, and most importantly, enjoying the ride. They serve as reminders that we can all be leaders and contribute to creating an environment for everyone to thrive in.

“The Charter School Honor Roll celebrates the top charter schools in America,” said Stuart Ellis, president and CEO of Charter School Capital. “We’re proud to recognize Compass Charter Schools among the Honor Roll for their student achievement, forward-thinking leadership and dedicated educators, and for doing everything in their power to support students with innovative education programs that nurture the power of the human mind.”

As a winner of the contest, CCS is invited to attend the 2019 National Charter School Conference where they will be honored at an exclusive award ceremony. Check out CCS and all of the other Charter School Honor Roll recipients here.
