Students will have clear and actionable academic and non-academic goals that are individualized to their needs and monitored quarterly.
Design a simple quarterly monitoring plan for students to use with their guidance counselors and teachers to define academic and non-academic goals, monitor progress, and define student accountability measures. This tool can be created through an online student learning plan or can be a printed guide.
Advisory workshops and other student learning opportunities can help strengthen student awareness or needs, support advocacy, and create goals based on academic progress and post-secondary interest.
For students seeking trade careers, the counselors can focus on moving the student towards AP courses that could help strengthen trade skills.
This process can help the school assess student progress throughout the years, effectiveness of the implementation plan and impact on AP participation/preparation.
