The Peer Leader (PL) program is available to students who have a study hall in their schedule. Peer Leaders will earn up to .50 elective credit (.25 per semester) for successful participation in the program. Daily attendance is the expectation for all Peer Leaders. Peer Leaders must also attend the mandatory training on August 9, 2023. Meeting details will be sent to students who are matched. Please read the course description carefully before completing the application. The withdraw (WD) policy will apply if a course is dropped to become a Peer Leader after May 5, 2023. Peer Leaders will be assigned to teacher classrooms based on teachers' need, previous enrollment and success in the course that the Peer Leader is volunteering for, and availability in the schedule. Peer Leaders will not be able to select specific teachers to work with.
Course Description: The Peer Leader Program is a course designed to assist students who have needs within their classroom environment. The course pairs a student with a classroom that could benefit from positive relationships and content support for students. Placing peers into classrooms with students who are struggling in these areas can often help support peers with their empathy and leadership skills. It also allows the teacher to focus on all students within the classroom, balancing his/her time with each student, since there is another support point person in the room. Peers learn to collaborate with their fellow students as well as the classroom teacher.
