• An advisory is a regularly scheduled period of time, during the school day when teachers meet with a group of students for the purpose of advising them on academic, social, or future-planning issues. At VMS we use advisory in the following ways:

    Monday: Video announcements, and weekly schoolwide lessons.

    Tuesday: Announcements, focus on missing assignments, and grade checks. Students receive missing assignment slips every two weeks.

    Wednesday: Announcements

    Thursday: Academic flexible intervention and enrichment. Teachers can request students to come to their class to make up tests or have a lesson re-taught.

    Friday: Academic flexible intervention and enrichment. Teachers can request students to come to their class to make up tests or have a lesson re-taught.

    NOTE: Math and English Language Arts advisories are also used for more intense interventions to provide students with extra time with their math/ELA teacher.
