How Can A Student Become A PEER?
The process by which students are selected to be PEER members has five steps:
1. Nominations and Application: Faculty members and staff may nominate rising juniors and seniors (current sophomores and juniors) to the PEER committee. Self-nomination is also encouraged.
2. Student must fill out the application and answer all the questions.
3. Parental Permission Form: PEER applicants and a parent or guardian must sign and return this form in order for the student to participate in the selection process and the program.
4. Recommendations: Recommendation forms will be necessary to complete an application to PEER. Two recommendations must be submitted on the student’s behalf. These forms are confidential and will be read by the PEER program selection team only. The forms will be destroyed after the selection process has been completed.
5. Interviews: The PEER committee will interview the applicants most qualified for selection.
6. The committee will look at the student’s attendance, academic responsibility and other factors to consider whether they should be a member. Since PEER is a group to help all students in the building, PEERs are chosen so that a diverse group is formed. PEER is a leadership position and students must demonstrate good character, responsibility and a willingness to work with students.
