Start writing for the Compass Collaborative student newspaper! The Compass Collaborative is published four times per year corresponding to Compass’s four quarters. The newspaper is led by a parent advisor and teen editors. See the latest edition here.
Get involved in the quarterly newspaper as a staff member, student reporter, or regular, occasional or one-time contributor.
Guest Contributor Guidelines:
Interested guest writers/contributors should contact Compass in order to be put in touch with the staff of the Compass Collaborative.
Students must be in grades 4-12. Staff, reporters, and contributors must be current, registered Compass students who maintain their Compass enrollment while they are working on the newspaper.
Staff members meet in person three times per quarter: the second Wednesday afternoon of the quarter from 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm; one time mid-quarter on a Wednesday afternoon (4:00 pm- 5:00 pm, dates to be announced); and the last Wednesday morning of the quarter from 9:00 am – 10:00 am to prepare the newspaper for distribution. Submissions from Staff and regular Reporters are due the 5th Friday of the quarter. Reporters and contributors may attend staff meetings when possible, or can chose coordinate all assignments through e-mail communication.
All newspaper staff members must sign-up online through the Compass Store to work on the Compass Collaborative. There is no cost for current, registered Compass students to participate.
