Teacher Advisors (TAs) – serve as the primary contact person for students, parents and staff; conduct weekly advisories by grade level, facilitate academic planning and more 2. Guidance Counselors – work with TAs to identify students requiring extra academic and/or social emotional support; support teachers and parents 3. College and Career Advisors – meet with juniors and seniors regarding post-high school planning
