Does Your Advisory Program Need A “Tune-Up”?

CAS is pleased to offer a half-day workshop on June 11, 2013 for school teams with established advisory programs to undergo a structured review and evaluation of their current program. Participants will re-visit the components of their advisory program and refine their goals, grouping, scheduling, curriculum, advisor roles and responsibilities, materials and resources, and linkages to other school programs. Intended for schools with student advisory programs already in place.

Participants will explore:
-Refinement your program’s design goals and outcomes
-The critical conditions necessary for a truly effective Advisory.
-Core experiences that will yield better faculty ownership & student buy-in.
-Design features that will yield successful implementation and proven results
-Strategies to link Student Success Plans, School Climate, Security and Safety procedures to Advisory.
-Next steps, professional development, and 2013-14 implementation strategies

A workshop to share our successes and struggles with advisory programs with a particular emphasis on “trouble shooting” areas that may be underdeveloped or struggling.
