The success of a two-year Teacher-Advisory Program at Mountain View Junior High School was studied. The program progressed from a minimal series of structured advisory sessions to a daily "Flex Period" of 30 minutes duration. One hundred and sixteen ninth and eighth grade students and a teaching staff of 28 were surveyed after the implementation of the program. The results showed support for the hypothesis that such a program assists in the improvement of: 1) student attitude toward school, 2) student awareness of student-adult relationship, and 3) student opportunities to receive guidance. The results failed to support the hypothesis that the program would assist in the improvement of attendence and academic performance. Finally, it reinforced the problems inherent in the program as established by earlier studies.
