Guidance, Counseling, Placement and Follow-Up Services Project. Final Report.
A secondary level career education program was implemented which focused on guidance, counseling, placement, and followup services for students within the Boise Independent School District, Idaho. Procedures followed in achieving project goals and objectives were (1) to develop a career and educational information center, (2) to use the center by involving students, teachers, and counselors, (3) to develop supplementary materials for the majority of school disciplines which will tie the subject area with career investigation, (4) to develop a placement service component which can involve all students in target schools, and (5) to develop a followup component which will point up the needs in career education. Following data analysis and evaluation, these recommendations were made: Permanent centers should be established at each high school. Each center should have a paraprofessional manager. The center must be adequately funded. Followup and placement activities should be among the functions of the center, but the center should not have the sole responsibility of these functions. The center must be located in a traffic pattern and be adequate in size to house student groups. Establishment of a student procedure for use of the center is necessary. Inservice for school personnel in necessary for establishment. Appendixes contain materials and studies used during the project. (TA)
