Pats Partnership (Advisory)

All students will create a Portfolio over the course of their time at Washington High School. The Portfolio will include the following: samples of your work (your best work and work that shows how you have improved); grades, test results, four-year plan, transcripts and credit check; your self-assessments about how you’re doing and how you can improve academically; career goals and post-secondary plans; a typed High School and Beyond Plan; a financial plan for your future; a record of your jobs, internships, or volunteer service; and honors or awards you’ve received.  The content of the Portfolio is created in Patriots Partnership, the advisory class that was developed to assist students in the development of a high school and beyond plan while at WHS. 

The Portfolio will be used in Student Led Conferences (SLCs) and Senior Presentations.  SLCs are held twice a year - once in the Fall and once in the Spring.  In 2012, the district approved a one-quarter (.25) yearly credit for advisory upon successful completion of Patriots Partnership/Advisory and will be awarded either P (pass) or F (fail). To earn the credit and a pass, students must complete both of the SLCs along with the tasks assigned to each grade level in the Portfolio. Senior Presentations occur during the spring of your senior year and are made to a panel of community members.

For students in the Class of 2022 and beyond, the Portfolio will be moving to a digital format which will be managed through MaiaLearning, a College & Career Readiness platform. Students and families will receive more information throughout the Fall 2019. 

Completion of a High School and Beyond Plan is required for graduation in the State of Washington.  The High School and Beyond Plan requirement for the Franklin Pierce School District is the completion and presentation of the portfolio.
