COMPASS (Community Partners with Schools)

COMPASS (Community Partners with Schools) community school teams across Simcoe County work to address the needs of school children and their families. COMPASS links elementary and secondary schools with providers of school-related supports and services such as:

-parenting programs
-child and youth mental health
-counseling
-child protection
-youth justice
-community recreation and more

COMPASS teams help schools to reduce the social, emotional or behavioral challenges to learning, and to enhance healthy child development. Schools are encouraged to attend their local COMPASS team, and to bring forth school requests.

There are eight COMPASS Community School Teams across Simcoe County: Angus, Barrie, Georgian West, Innisfil, North Simcoe, Orillia and South West Simcoe and a Francophone COMPASS serving Simcoe County.
