how thick of a layer of straw

if it is a reasonable amount and already moist and decomposing you can put your compost on top. if it is a very large and dry amount it might cause problems and in that case I would remove it, compost it and then put it back on in the fall or if its dry and still straw rake it aside, spread your compost and plant and then use the straw again as mulch.
by reasonable amount I mean a couple inches
