    • Work with students who have to revise their proposals.
    • Be clear about whether you are comfortable with an independent project versus an internship.
    • Read and comment on the proposal (proposals will be available through your Scarsdale Google drive account).
    • Contact internship sites prior to students leaving for Senior Options.


    After Senior Options begins:

    • Meet with student at least once a week for internships/projects.
    • During your weekly meetings, check the student time log, student journals, videos and help students reflect on their experiences.
    • Follow up with the sponsor after the student has been working for 2 weeks.
    • Make at least one site visit. 
    • Contact parents if students are not fulfilling their requirements.
    • Contact your case manager or Jose Lamela if students are not fulfilling their requirements.
    • When Senior Options nears closure, sign up for a presentation time.
