A student sleeps during his advisory class. Under the new change, students will stay in their seconds and sixth periods, but can travel to other teachers classrooms for tutoring or extra help.

After a decline in attendance during the advisory period, administrators moved the advisory time to the end of second and sixth periods. Starting April 9, students will remain in their second and sixth periods for advisory and students returning from Ben Barber will be assigned a classroom. 

“Our goal is to make this campus as secure as possible,” Assistant Principal Pedro Cavazos said. “If we reduce the number of transitions, the likelihood of someone getting in the building when students are leaving is reduced.”

Dr. Stephanie Bonneau, principal, hopes the change will increase the attendance in advisory.

“We need students to be in advisory,” Dr. Bonneau said. “I’m hoping this will happen because they are already in class and will be staying there.”

Students, with a pass from the teacher, can attend tutoring during advisory. Even though in a different class, teachers will end instruction at 10:30, so students can work on homework or study. 

“The time is still dedicated to advisory-related activities,” Dr. Bonneau said. “The only thing changing is the location.”

Dr. Bonneau made this change based on feedback from teachers, department chairs and administrators. 

“I just want students all to know we are always thinking of them all when making this decision,” Mr. Cavazos said. “It may seem like we are doing this to you all, but we are actually doing this for [the students].”
