Advisory program coming to LHS

Alexis Gamache, News Editor

Big adjustments will be made come this January when the “Advisory Program” starts up after being put on hold due to lack of resources.

The program calls for a class added to the week where students can go and talk to teachers about anything regarding school, from grades to class decisions.

“As of right now, yes, the program is still on,” says Tesha Ward, guidance counselor.

On the days the advisory class meets, three minutes will be taken out of each class, providing 20 minutes total for the advisory class.

Ten to 15 students will be picked at random to be assigned with a teacher, giving them the opportunity to interact with people they haven’t before.

The program will focus on the following areas: community, acceptance, and continuity.

“We’re trying to make the program a safe place where students can come for support,” says Ward.

Once assigned with a teacher he or she will be the advisory teacher for the rest of one’s high school career.

“I think it’s a good idea. It’ll benefit all students having another adult to talk to,” says history teacher Jessica Brehaut. “I don’t feel planning lessons will be difficult, I think once everything gets going it’ll be natural.”
