To find the strengths of the school district you don’t have to look long. They can be found within the teachers and staff. There is a wealth of knowledge and expertise within the school district that I believe for too long has gone untapped. We must better engage the faculty and staff in order to determine what works and what doesn’t. They are the front line of the work we do daily with students and they know what needs to happen to increase student success.

It takes a village to raise a child. We have seen some educational strength at the elementary school level, where more parents are involved as volunteers and teachers have a better outlook on the academic chances of students. In recent years, we have had some schools win the National Blue Ribbon Award, which should serve as an example of what could be done at the middle and high school levels.

The District attracts teachers that are genuinely interested in helping students excel –simply because of the Compton name. In terms of other educational strengths, I cannot see any progress.
