An orientation session is a time to meet with teachers and/or staff to learn new procedures and expectations Participants in an orientation session would need to arrive at the starting time of the session in order to receive all the information being presented. Classroom teachers and administrators are available to share information with you and answer questions. Not all grade levels at Brown have orientations scheduled.
