The Shift Towards Enrichment

In the 2017-2018 school year, a shift has been made clarifying the differences in the behavior that should be expected in the different days of advisory. Generally, enrichment days, Mondays and Thursdays, are the time to see teachers for help and focus on academics. During these more academically focused days, teachers can call in student’s who are struggling with a concept or just need an extra push in the right direction in a class. In some advisories, the other days are used as “social days”, for instance, Mr. Bernal’s advisory. However, certain classes are stricter and all days are to be used as homework days. Jill Montgomery, second year English teacher, has a freshman advisory this year and says she can see a “clear difference in the days”. However, she had a senior advisory last year, and she highlighted the differences in value of enrichment days dependent on the class.
