Starting next week, youll have the freedom to decide where youll be going each day during Wednesday iChoose Advocate by using the Student Advocate Portal. As you will see, the Advocate Portal will only allow you to confirm one meeting each Wednesday and will lock students out by midnight Tuesday. If you dont sign up for a meeting in the Portal, it will automatically default for you to attend Home Advocate.
Additionally, if youre a planner, you can confirm to attend meetings for days in the future. For example, if youre a Student Council member and know when all the Student council meetings are scheduled, you can sign up for all of them at one time.4Go to Adv.leanderisd.org orClick onenter the portal
