Questions & Answers Building Your Advisership Q I am a new adviser in a middle school, taking over for a previous adviser who left the school at the beginning of March. The exit was sudden, and I did not have an opportunity to meet with the adviser before she left to discuss what my role and responsibilities would be with the council. My principal has articulated his support for me, but he has not been able to clearly describe my position. What is the function of a middle school council, and what should I as the adviser do beyond helping the kids plan their projects? A Starting a school year as a new adviser is difficult enough. When thrust into the role late in the year, the new adviser inherits a council already well into its activities with established routines. As such, it's vital for the adviser to become familiar with any project or activity currently underway and to meet with the officers to review the council calendar for the remainder of the year. With the last two months of school upon you, it's highly probable that there are elections to be planned and scheduled. Late in the school year is not the time to make drastic changes in council routines or calendars; but at the same time, a very busy council can be overwhelming, and it may be necessary to trim or delay an activity or two to make the new role manageable. april 2015 5
