Advocacy

At Frederick High, the ultimate goal is for students to advocate for themselves.  On the road to self-advocacy, students are supported by a network of advocates which includes school counselors, teachers, business and community partners, and LYNX Advocates.    

Our LYNX Advocates for the 2018-19 school year are: Ms. Kathy Koops, Mr. Marlon Moran, Ms. Beth Sands, and Ms. Sandra Zimmerman.

Every LYNX student creates a “Student Success Plan” to serve as a roadmap for college and career readiness with the support of their parents and families. LYNX students will identify interest-based learning ambitions and career aspirations, then design a schedule of coursework, programs, networks and partnerships specifically designed to support their goals.
