    The LA College Promise


    LAVC will host a Promise YouTube Live session for the students and families of Burbank High School.  This session is a perfect time for students, parents/guardians, and families to learn about the Promise.  Frances Chmielewska will coordinate with you and LAVC's President, Dr. Barry Gribbon's, to schedule this meeting for your students and families.  


    We have started the process of helping your students join the Promise.  Students will complete an online transition activity through Canvas; our learning management platform.  Once they have completed those steps they will receive a one-on-one appointment with a counselor to develop their first-semester educational plan.  Outreach staff will assist them in adding classes as soon as their counseling appointment is complete.  These sessions will take place in Cranium Café; our online counseling software, but alternate formats can be offered if students cannot access that platform.  Outreach staff members are available to help the students through the entire process.
