One of the objectives of this institute was to review some of the approaches to work orientation being used or proposed in the Delaware School Syatem, and to: (1) orient counselors to the ramifications of H.B. 509, (2) develop guidelines for implementation of programs of occupational exploration and awareness, (3) provide a forum for counselors to discuss common problems and to exchange ideas for means of providing occupational information, and (4) review such basic tools of occupational guidance as the Dictionary of Occupational Titles and the General Aptitude Test Battery. Programs were presented, reviewed and discussed System, and to: (1) orient counselors to the ramifications of H.B. 509, (2) Specific recommendations were that: (1) Faculty members must be thoroughly trained to implement any innovation, (2) Each district should designate an individual to assume responsibility for the program, and (3) The program should serve grades K-12.
