BYOD

Bring your own device. BYOD, is a technology trend in the education and corporate environments worldwide. Students are more comfortable using their personal device and become expert at using it, making them more productive. Our program is designed to give students and families the freedom to make technology choices that suit them and all their circumstances. The network and Internet are filtered, providing a safe environment for students. All students from Years 5 - 10 are required to bring their own device (BYOD).

Parent Communication 

 

Compass

Macleod College uses an online communication portal called COMPASS to share information for students and parents including:

  • News items

  • Receive SMS messages

  • Email contacts

  • School curriculum resources

  • Lesson plans

  • View learning tasks and results

  • View your children’s timetables

  • Check and approve your children’s attendance 

  • Book parent/teacher conferences

  • View and download student reports

  • Course Confirmation - payment option for school charges

  • Events - consent and payment

Macleod College uses COMPASS as a primary means of communication between school and home, and we have provided each family with a PARENT LOGIN. We ask that you check COMPASS regularly as it will provide you with important information about school events through the news feed and calendar.

Use the following web address: https://macleod-vic.compass.education

 


How to log in to COMPASS
Once you are on the COMPASS login screen, use your unique USERNAME LOGIN. You will be able to use COMPASS immediately. It is very important that these login details are NOT given to students. All students have their own login details and should not have any reason to use the parent login.
