North, Robert D.; And Others
The main purpose of the program, funded under ESEA, Title I is to help pupils in non-public schools, located in disadvantaged areas cope with social, emotional or physical difficulties that interfere with academic progress. The field staff consisted of 30 full-time and 47 part-time guidance counselors, 18 full-time social workers, three full-time psychologists and three psychiatrists filling one full-time position. They served 155 of the 170 schools in New York City that were eligible to join the program. These schools, located in all five boroughs, were administered by Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Hebrew, Lutheran, Episcopal, and Ukrainian Catholic Denominations, enrolling about 80,000 students. The guidance counselors, who received the initial referrals, screened 8995 youngsters, accepted about 6900 as active cases, carried over 2373 from the year before, and had almost 300 on their waiting lists at the time these figures were compiled. They reported that 18,663 students had participated in some group activity such as workshops and high school orientation sessions. Workshop sessions for parents and teachers were conducted. Clinicians served in 94 schools--in some instances as consultants only--but in most on a regular basis. (Author/JM)
