Designing a Better Advisory System: Building Relationships Toward a More Equitable Education System
If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that strong relationships between students and school staff members are critically important. Advisory systems are one important way that schools and districts ensure every student has a strong and supportive relationship with at least one staff member.
During this three-day virtual institute, participants will learn how advisory systems can improve outcomes for all students. Participants will also examine effective middle and high school advisory structures in order to build or refine their school’s or district’s own advisory system. We encourage school- or district-based design teams to attend, as a portion of our time will be spent building a vision for an advisory system and action planning toward making that vision a reality in the 2021-2022 school year.
- Reflect on the current status and quality of your advisory program
- Create a vision for a successful advisory program at your school or district
- Create an action plan in order to bring your advisory design from ideas to reality
- Experience activities that you can implement as part of your advisory program and for professional development purposes
