The heart of Metro is the advisor/advisee system. Advisor groups meet each week for announcements, credit and attendance check ups and more. An advisor check in, check out is scheduled each school day.
To improve the advisor/advisee system we've identified four key actions for advisors.
- communicating student success with parents/guardians
- problem solving when obstacles interfere with learning
- monitoring schedules to ensure progress towards graduation
- assisting with career and post secondary plans
