BLOCKS TO LEARNING, PLANS FOR THE FUTURE OF THE DIVISION OF PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES.
LIFTON, WALTER M.; AND OTHERS
THE ROCHESTER CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT, NEW YORK, OFFERED A PROPOSED PLAN FOR THE REORGANIZATION OF THEIR PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES. AN APPRAISAL OF THE PRESENT SERVICES SHOWED THAT OVERLAP AND LACK OF COORDINATION WERE AMONG THE MAJOR PROBLEMS ALONG WITH A SHORTAGE OF NECESSARY PERSONNEL. ON AN EXPERIMENTAL BASIS, COUNSELORS OF VARIOUS TRAINING BACKGROUNDS WERE PLACED IN FIVE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ON A FULL-TIME BASIS. EVALUATION OF THIS PROGRAM SHOWED THE PRINCIPALS IN THE SCHOOLS FAVORED A FULL-TIME COUNSELOR, (OVER PART-TIME PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS) LIKE PSYCHOLOGISTS AND SOCIAL WORKERS. SUPERVISION OF THE COUNSELORS WAS PLANNED TO TAKE PLACE IN GROUP MEETINGS AND THROUGH COWORKER INTERACTION. THE PROPOSED PLAN REORGANIZED THE SERVICES INTO FOUR DEPARTMENTS WITH SPECIALISTS IN CHILD DEVELOPMENT, GUIDANCE, ATTENDANCE AND RECORD KEEPING, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL WORK SERVICES. THE DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF EACH DEPARTMENT WERE DETAILED. (NS)
