Advisor Base & Flex Time
Advisor Base is a scheduled time through which GHS ensures that each student is known by adult mentors in the school, other than the student's counselor. During this time, students will participate in activities to support their academic, personal and interpersonal growth, such as goal setting, course selection and college planning. Advisor Base will be held roughly one to two times a month on Wednesdays. Advisor Base will take place from 8:30 - 8:55 am. On days when Advisor Base is held, there will be no Flex Time.
** Attendance in Advisor Base is mandatory and appropriate consequences will be issued to students who do not attend. Parents will be able to view their child's attendance for Advisor Base.

Flex Time is one way through which GHS takes collective responsibility for the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional well-being of every student. This designated time at the end of each day is focused on providing a balance of academic, social, and civic opportunities to meet the needs of diverse learners. Flex Time is scheduled from 2:50pm – 3:15pm everyday, with the exception of Advisor Base days. Students may be scheduled by staff for meetings or extra help. After the first marking period progress reports, students will be able to schedule themselves for extra help or participate in enrichment activities. If a student's grade is a C- or below in a class when Progress Report and Marking Period grades are posted, students will automatically be assigned to Flex Time with their teacher.
Students are required to use the My Flex Learning platform to see their schedule and sign up for additional activities.
** Attendance in Flex Time is mandatory and appropriate consequences will be issued to students who do not attend. Parents will be able to view their child's attendance for Flex Time.
