The Glue Behind Successful High School Transition: A Different Kind of Advisor

Time & Location

May 24, 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM CDT

About this Webinar

Starting high school can be scary. Imagine that you are a ninth-grade student at freshman orientation, and you’ve just learned that your high school has created an intentional class called advisory. You will be assigned an “advisor” who will be with you and the same group of students from your graduating class for all four years of high school. Now, imagine you are a senior sitting at your graduation ceremony, and your advisor walks to the stage to give a speech addressing your advisory and the four years you’ve spent together. How do you think the advisory has affected your high school experience?

Establishing authentic relationships is the foundation for easing the transition from grammar school to high school. In this webinar, participants will learn the ins and outs of our advisory system and will be able to answer the following questions:

· What is the purpose of advisory?

· What is the role of an advisor?

· What are the structures, roles, and functions of advisory?

· What does a successful advisory system look like?
