BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR AN ADEQUATE PUPIL PERSONNEL PROGRAM.
FERGUSON, JOHN L.
THE PRINCIPAL CONCERN IN DEVELOPING THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR A PUPIL PERSONNEL PROGRAM IS HOW THE PROGRAM SHOULD BE ORGANIZED TO PROVIDE EACH PUPIL WITH THE BEST QUALIFIED SERVICE, SO THAT THE PUPIL CAN MOBILIZE HIS STRENGTHS AND RESOURCES TO HIS GREATEST BENEFIT. ONE REQUIREMENT IS THAT ONE PERSON SHOULDER THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE GUIDANCE OF EACH CHILD, WITH THE REMAINING STAFF ACTING AS RESOURCES TO THE CHILD AND HIS COUNSELOR. THE OPERATIONAL UNIT, WHICH IS THE BASIC AND COMPLETE UNIT SERVING ONE OR MORE ATTENDANCE UNITS, SHOULD ASSESS, INTERPRET, AND IMPLEMENT INDIVIDUAL NEEDS. ALTHOUGH EACH OPERATIONAL UNIT SHOULD HAVE CERTAIN CORE SERVICES AND PROGRAMS, DIFFERENTIAL PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES WILL BE NECESSARY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF SELECTED CHILDREN. BASIC MINIMAL STAFFING OF OPERATIONAL UNITS SHOULD PROVIDE FOR CERTIFIED PERSONNEL REPRESENTING GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING, SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY, SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK, AND HEALTH SERVICES, ASSISTED BY SUB-PROFESSIONAL PERSONNEL. OTHER REQUIREMENTS ARE THE NEED FOR LOCAL AND INTERMEDIATE OPERATIONAL UNITS, PROGRAM EVALUATION, AND CURRICULAR OPPORTUNITIES MEETING BASIC VOCATIONAL AND AVOCATIONAL NEEDS. FINALLY, THE STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION MUST PROVIDE ACTIVE LEADERSHIP AND ESTABLISH REGIONAL COORDINATING SERVICE CENTERS. (CG)
