New Visions for Public Schools
This publication focuses on student advisory programs. High school students often feel disconnected and have few personalized relationships with the adults who educate them. Advisory programs are based on the belief that students need the opportunity to develop trusting relationships with adult educators and that doing so benefits students in a variety of ways. In a student advisory program, each student in the school is assigned a teacher or staff member who assists the student in achieving his or her academic and personal goals. Advisory usually includes an advisory class and one-to-one advisement to address personal issues. This publication describes the advisory programs offered in three New York City public high schools. Appended are: (1) Some High Schools with Advisories that You Can Contact for More Information; (2) References; (3) Resources; and (4) Guide to School Visits.
