CANGEMI, JOSEPH P.; FANTINI, MARIO D.
TWELVE CHARACTERISTIC SYMPTOMS OF STUDENT MALADJUSTMENT ARE LISTED IN AN ATTEMPT TO HELP PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND COUNSELORS TO IDENTIFY THE POTENTIAL DROPOUT. TO INSURE PROPER GUIDANCE AND SUPERVISION OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM, THE SELECTED STUDENTS WILL ATTEND A VOCATIONAL ORIENTATION WEEKEND AND WILL THEN REPORT FOR JOB INTERVIEWS, BEGINNING NEW EXPERIENCES AT THEIR RESPECTIVE TRAINING STATIONS. STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS WILL BE INFORMED OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE PROGRAM. STUDENTS DELIBERATELY VIOLATING THE MOST SERIOUS REGULATIONS, SUCH AS STEALING FROM AN EMPLOYER, WILL BE DISMISSED FROM THE PROGRAM IMMEDIATELY. STUDENT FOLLOWUP TECHNIQUES WILL INCLUDE--"COUNSELING" - ONE-TO-ONE COUNSELING SESSIONS WILL BE A PART OF EACH STUDENTS' PROGRAM AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK, CONTACTING EMPLOYERS, "REPORTS" - PERTINENT INFORMATION ON EACH STUDENT WILL BE ON FILE IN THE COORDINATOR'S OFFICE, "JOB CHANGES" - A CHANGE OF TRAINING OR ENVIRONMENT WILL BE EFFECTED FOR THE GOOD OF BOTH THE STUDENT AND THE EMPLOYER, "TESTING" - AT THE BEGINNING OF AND END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, TESTING WILL COMPARE AND DETERMINE THE RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE EXPERIENCES, AND "PARENT-TEACHER CONTACTS" - PERIODICALLY, PARENTS AND TEACHERS WILL BE ASKED TO EVALUATE STUDENT BEHAVIOR, PARTICULARLY THAT RELATING TO SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT AND SATISFACTION. TO KNOW AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ABOUT EACH STUDENT IN THE PROGRAM, INTERVIEWS AND TESTS (INTELLIGENCE, APTITUDE, INTEREST, AND PERSONALITY) WILL BE ADMINISTERED. A TYPICAL STUDENT-TRAINEE DAILY SCHEDULE IS PRESENTED. COMMUNITY SUPPORT, EXPANSION PLANS, AND THE ADVISORY BOARD ARE DISCUSSED.
