Transcript: - Easy to work with - Try to accommodate the schedule requests - Help us with extra ciricular opportunities - Counselors help address the developmental needs of the growing number of students from culturally diverse backgrounds (Lee). - Many counselors are given tasks that don't allow them to put their skills to work (Timm). - 70% of high school counselors say they are tasked with administrative and clerical duties (Sheehy). - How many of you have had a bad experience with the school counselors concerning schedule changes or about getting ready for college? 1. They are overworked 2. Changing your schedule is ALWAYS a hassle 3. Very rarely do they talk with you concerning your emotional problems - Principals are pulled in so many different directions and having someone to resolve student problems before they reach the office, gives the administration time to concentrate on other issues (Santos). - There are too many obstacle to overcome when you want to meet with the school counselor (Fox). - Since counselors are overworked, they don't provide an inviting environment and are too busy to help students with emotional problems (Kent). - We need to separate school counselors from academic advisement. - Advisory teachers and student mentors will collaborate with students. - Train the mentors and teachers - Increase the availability of counselors - Less complaints from students concerning schedules and academic advising Issues Exit 435 Issues Create Student Mentors - Teachers can help students be aware of class changes - Counselors need to train teachers how to help students with their academic concerns - No resources are needed - teachers are in place - Program will be successful if there are less people going to counselors for academic advising and for schedule changes - Information will be gathered throughout the school year Student Advisement Center - Create a pool of seniors to mentor the underclassmen. - The Student Government, teachers, and administration will gather these students. - The resources are already in place.
