Mentor - Mentee
All students are assigned a Mentor for the duration of their high school career. The Mentor/Mentee Class (M/M) meets once a week for 30 minutes. In the M/M class the student works with their Mentor to schedule their classes, monitor their academic progress, and to ensure that Graduation Requirements are being met. The product of the class is the M/M Portfolio that includes a Personalized Education Plan, a record of all Grade Reports and Transcripts, and an assemblage of the student's best pieces of work during their high school career. The class provides opportunities to research and participate in post-high school experiences through Career Reviews and Career Related Learning Experiences ( Job Shadows). The M/M class also allows time to develop and complete the State Required Programs of Career Related Learning Standards (C.R.L.S.) and Extended Applications (E.A. or Senior Project). At the end of their Senior Year, students will have earned 1/2 credit in Career Education by the completion of all of the class requirements.
REQUIREMENTS BY YEAR
Participating in a Job Shadow is a Requirement for both the Junior and Senior Mentor - Mentee Classes. The links below will help you complete this requirement. The first option allows you to download a complete booklet. You can then print the document and hand write the responses necessary to complete the assignment. The other three options allow you to word process your responses. Whether you use the hand write or printable options, the completed document needs to be returned to your Mentor for inclusion into your M/M Portfolio.
There are alternative assignments available for replacing a Job Shadow or the A.S.V.A.B. requirements. Please understand that these Alternative Assignments can be used only once. Additionally, only the Job Fair can be used to replace the A.S.V.A.B. requirement. The following links provide the printable documentation to satisfy the M/M requirement.
CAREER RELATED LEARNING STANDARDS (C.R.L.S.)
The Career Related Learning Standards (C.R.L.S.) are fundamental skills that have been identified as essential for success in employment, college, family, and community life. These skills are taught throughout the curriculum, integrated with academic learning, and emphasized in the students' career-related learning experiences. Completion of the C.R.L.S. is a Junior year Requirement. The links below provide a savable file that the student can download into their personal directory and add to as evidence of completion is attained.
The Senior Project also known as the Extended Application, is the capstone of the student's high school experience as well as the Mentor-Mentee class. The Senior Project provides the chance to design and implement a complex learning experience that represents their interests, the knowledge and skills they have gained in school, and their vision for the future. While each student's work will be unique, every Senior Project must include 5 parts. The 5 parts are the Research and Reflection Essay, a Mentorship Connection, a Project Proposal, the Product and/or Experience, and finally an Oral Presentation. The links below can be used to create a well documented Senior Project.
MENTOR MENTEE PORTFOLIO
A requirement for Mentor - Mentee is for the student to maintain a Portfolio from their Freshman through Senior years. An easy access as well as a complete copy of a Blank Portfolio is available below. With these links it is possible to print an entire Portfolio or just individual pages.
