Weekly check-ins between PMs that support 11th/12th grade pairs should include a focus on topics relevant to post-secondary advising. The Advising Add-On is designed to ensure that time and space is dedicated to this discussion. It is recommended that the content of this add-on be copied and pasted above the baseline check-in document. Additionally the amount or specificity of information managers require PMs to report each week in other areas may need to be changed to accommodate advising targeted discussions. Additionally, it is important that PMs are adding pairs to their focus list each week for advising purposes as well as relationship development.
Sections of the Add-On
The Advising Add-On is split into sections that PMs fill out prior to submitting it to their manager as the agenda for the meeting. Each section is outlined below, including tips for PMs to complete the document (use the links to skip through the sections).
This section prompts PMs to share the ways PMs are using Enroll to inform and/or improve pair support. Additionally, PMs are provided space to include any specific data they want to highlight from Enroll to add context to their check-in in service of thoughtful collaboration with their manager. Finally, PMs should use this section to present challenges/questions they want to brainstorm during the check-in.
To assist PMs and managers in identifying the right advising conversations to have at the right points in time, this article provides Advising Checklists for both 11th and 12th grade cohorts.
This section prompts PMs to note the ways they are partnering with their school-based counselor/other college-focused organizations in the school to support pairs through the post-secondary process. PMs should consider including details regarding when and how often they are meeting with other college success stakeholders at the school as well as pertinent details from that partnership. Additionally, PMs should make note of the ways they are collecting information from their school partner regarding the post-secondary process - as well as the information they are sharing with the school partner. Finally, PMs should include questions and/or support needs regarding collaboration with their school partner on the college process.
