How To Design an Advisory System for a Secondary School.
Goldberg, Mark F.
An advisory system is a simple method that ensures that no secondary school student becomes anonymous. Using staff as advisors guarantees that each student has an advocate; this provides students with an ongoing relationship to a mature professional who promotes their best interest. This book outlines how to investigate and establish an advisory system that is tailored to the needs of a particular school. Topics covered include: defining an advisory system; setting up the advisory system; training staff; determining the role of an advisory committee; choosing place and time for meeting; keeping records; placing students; achieving a reasonable advisor-student ratio; outlining a professional advisor-student relationship; and communicating with parents. The book also covers: examining the role of guidance counselors; helping students select courses; and determining an advisor's role in student discipline. An appendix lists related publications and contact schools. (MKA)
