ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS IN CALIFORNIA.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
TO ASCERTAIN THE NUMBER, LOCATION, EXPERIENCE, AND FUNCTION OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS, ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, AND ELEMENTARY COUNSELORS WERE SURVEYED USING QUESTIONNAIRES. THE MAJOR FINDING WAS THAT SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND COUNSELORS AGREED ON WHAT THE COUNSELOR SHOULD BE DOING. TEACHERS VIEWED THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS AS VERY EFFECTIVE AND REQUESTED AN INCREASE IN THE SERVICES ALREADY PROVIDED. FEW COUNSELORS INDICATED A NEED FOR SPECIALIZED COURSES FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE PERSONNEL. A UNIQUE ROLE OF THE COUNSELOR HAD NOT BEEN CLEARLY ESTABLISHED SINCE FUNCTIONS AND DUTIES OVERLAP THOSE PERFORMED BY OTHER PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS SUCH AS SCHOOL PSYCHOMETRISTS. THE DATA DID NOT SUPPORT THE HYPOTHESIS THAT COUNSELORS AS MEMBERS OF A SCHOOL STAFF RATHER THAN OF A DISTRICT OR COUNTY OFFICE STAFF CONTACT MORE PUPILS AND SPEND MORE TIME IN A COUNSELING RELATIONSHIP THAN OTHER PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS.
