Student Support Services
Teacher Advisor Program
The Teacher Advisor Program is an integral part of Calaveras Hills High School’s commitment to assist students in the successful attainment of the Schoolwide Learner Objectives (SLOs).
Each Cal Hills student is assigned an advisor who may be a teacher and counselor. Each advisor is assigned approximately fifteen students. Students meet with their advisors during the daily homeroom period and on an individual basis.
Advisors build personal rapport by acknowledging each student as an individual endowed with unique abilities and interests. Advisors help students select classes and monitor their advisees’ progress toward graduation. The advisor’s function is to encourage and help each student, to act as an advocate when necessary and to respond to academic and personal needs of the student. Each advisor stays in continual contact with the students, teachers and parents/guardians, acting as a liaison and facilitating success.
