1:1 Mentoring is one of the important pillars of Summit Learning. We know how important it is for children to be truly connected with and cared for by the adults at their school. Through Summit Learning, all students are paired with a mentor who acts as their advocate both inside and outside of the classroom.
A mentor can be a teacher, a school leader, or other administrators at a student’s school. Mentors meet with their students 1:1 regularly and use the Mentoring page in the Platform to support their students in their progress towards their short-term and long-term academic and personal goals.
The Mentoring page in the platform gives teachers more flexibility, predictability, and control over their mentoring schedule--doing so enables teachers to more easily integrate mentoring time into what’s happening in their classrooms.
Teachers can also see insights around how they are implementing mentoring with their students, as well as data snapshots on how their students are progressing; as a result, teachers can easily know which students to prioritize for check-in scheduling, how to best prepare for each check-in, and how to make sure that every student gets the mentoring time they need.
Within the Mentoring page, mentors can:
- Schedule regular check-in meetings
- Set a check-in agenda
- Follow up on student goals
- Take notes
- Leave notes for students or for themselves about the students
- Review past check-ins
- See consolidated data, such as academic data and days since last check-in
