KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory

At this team’s school, every staff member serves as an advisor to a cohort of 12-16 students (a ‘RISE’) from freshman year to graduation. The team of teachers plans to create a professional learning series that codifies the expectations and supports for teaching lessons during daily RISE time, mentoring advisees, maintaining relationships with RISE-ee’s guardians, and other advisor duties. Teachers will participate in workshops and participate in lesson studies to develop differentiated RISE curriculum for each grade level, rooted in social-emotional learning and other grade-specific skills. Team members will also distill the best practices of advising into workshops for advisors of each grade level.
