STUDENT-PARENT-COUNSELOR CONFERENCES, AN AID IN EDUCATIONAL PLANNING.
MCCREARY, WILLIAM H.
MORE THAN 100 CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOLS HAVE INVOLVED PARENTS, STUDENTS, AND COUNSELORS IN PLANNING CONFERENCES WHERE TEST SCORES ARE INTERPRETED, FUTURE EDUCATION AND CAREER PLANS IN RELATION TO THE STUDENT'S ABILITY ARE DISCUSSED, AND, IN SOME CASES, THE SCHOOL'S COURSE OFFERINGS ARE EXPLAINED. ATTENDANCE HAS BEEN HIGH AND THE RESULTS SEEM TO INDICATE A MORE REALISTIC VIEW OF STUDENTS, A STIMULATION OF INTEREST IN CAREER PLANNING, AND IMPROVEMENT OF PARENTS' UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION. THE SCHOOLS ORGANIZE THE CONFERENCES IN VARIOUS WAYS. SOME SCHEDULE SUMMER CONFERENCES FOR ALL FRESHMEN AND TRANSFER STUDENTS. OFTEN CONFERENCES ARE SCHEDULED BY GRADE LEVEL. ONE MEASURE OF EVALUATION IS THE SOUNDNESS OF THE STUDENT'S PLANS, AND HIS ABILITY TO CARRY OUT OR CHANGE THOSE PLANS TO FIT CHANGING CONDITIONS. PARENTS ARE GIVEN FORMS ON WHICH TO EVALUATE THE CONFERENCES BY INDICATING THE ADEQUACY OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED AND RECOMMENDING CHANGES. SAMPLE LETTERS OF INVITATION AND EVALUATION FORMS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE REPORT. (TU)
