Professional development (PD) is most successful when planned and implemented together. We recommend teams from middle grades schools, high schools, career and technical education (CTE) centers, or districts include at least an administrator, a counselor, an academic teacher and a CTE teacher. Content experts will be available to assist teams in planning and developing an effective advisement program.
At this PD event, participants will be able to:
Explain the need for providing all students an adviser/coach/mentor.
Create a support system that addresses students’ need for personal, social, academic, postsecondary education/training, and career knowledge and skills.
Create a systematic plan for assisting students to develop a personalized education and career plan.
Design and implement an advisement system that will launch students on their journey to a successful future.
