GUIDANCE PRACTICES FOR IMPROVING SCHOOL HOLDING. ANNUAL REPORT. (TITLE SUPPLIED)
LOSI, CARRIE R.
MANY PROCEDURES WERE UTILIZED FOR CHECKING SYMPTOMS AND CAUSES OF BEHAVIOR COMMON TO POTENTIAL DROPOUTS, SUCH AS FAILURE, TRUANCY, APATHY, DISINTEREST, POOR READING, LACK OF ADJUSTMENT, AND NONPARTICIPATION IN ACTIVITIES. CUMULATIVE RECORDS, TEACHER OBSERVATIONS, AND COUNSELOR CONTACTS HELPED TO IDENTIFY THESE STUDENTS. STUDENTS WERE INTERVIEWED EVERY TERM. GROUP GUIDANCE WAS CONDUCTED IN EDUCATIONAL, VOCATIONAL, PERSONAL AND SOCIAL MATTERS. ORIENTATION AND TESTING WERE GIVEN TO ALL NEW STUDENTS. INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMS WERE ADJUSTED WHERE COURSES SEEMED TO BE THE POSSIBLE CAUSE OF FAILURES AND DROPOUTS. NONACADEMIC STUDENTS WERE ALLOWED TO EXPLORE IN SHOP EXPERIENCES. POTENTIAL DROPOUTS WERE CAREFULLY INTERVIEWED. CASE CONFERENCES INCLUDING TEACHERS AND COUNSELORS HELPED TO SOLVE INDIVIDUAL PROBLEMS. IF ALL EFFORTS FAILED TO KEEP A STUDENT IN SCHOOL, FOLLOW-UP CONFERENCES HELPED TO GUIDE THE STUDENT INTO EVENING CLASSES AND EMPLOYMENT SITUATIONS. PLANS ARE UNDERWAY TO INITIATE A WORK-STUDY PROGRAM TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN SCHOOL AND EMPLOYMENT.
