Project Compass

Project Compass is a District wide school improvement plan for the schools of the Nebraska District. The vision of Project Compass is that all the Lutheran Schools in the Nebraska District LCMS will implement the Concordia Curriculum Guide for Lutheran elementary schools, map their curricula in a consistent manner, test the students using a consistent system, and become accredited through National Lutheran School Accreditation.
