Should I schedule weekly or biweekly check-ins?

You should aim for 10-min weekly check-ins because students are asked to reflect on the last 7 days of goals, regardless of the day of the week their check-in falls on. 

For some mentors/mentees (esp. in higher grades), biweekly 20-min check-ins can more effectively meet the objectives of mentoring, including supporting mentee's self-direction, learning and strong relationship. This is an option if desired. 

To change the frequency of your check-ins:

1. Click on Mentoring from the left Navigation menu
2. Click on Settings
3. Next to each student's name, click on the second dropdown to customize how often you'd like to meet with the individual
