Advisor Group

The heart of Metro is the advisor/advisee system. Advisor group meets each week for announcements, credit and attendance checks and more. Metro's daily schedule begins with an advisor check in during Metro Reads. 

To improve the advisor/advisee system we've identified four key actions for advisors.

  1. communicating student success with parents/guardians
  2. problem solving when obstacles interfere with learning
  3. monitoring schedules to ensure progress towards graduation
  4. assisting with career and post secondary plans
