INTRODUCTION

 

Advisor-Advisee programs may be implemented with elementary, middle, and high school levels.  In schools using advisory programs, caring adults are partnered with students on a one-to-one basis.  Advisors may be parents, teachers, business representatives, community members, or older students including college students performing community service as their work-study. 

Advisors meets with the student on a regular basis for the purpose of academic, career, and personal-social advising.  Advisors have basic training in the school's guidance curriculum, limits of confidentiality, referral procedures, and active listening. 

Advisory activities 1) help students master the guidance standards and indicators, 2) help students set goals and monitor their progress toward those goals, and 3) give students a chance to develop a guidance relationship with a caring adult.

 

 

WORKSHOPS

The American Student Achievement Institute provides professional development, on a very limited basis, for schools outside Indiana that are interested in implementing or revitalizing their Advisor-Advisee programs.  Programs include 1-2 hour presentations, 1-2 day workshops, and a five-part workshop series held throughout the school year.  Similar workshops are provided to Indiana schools by the Indiana Department of Education.  Indiana schools may request professional development by calling 317-232-9172.
