Implementation of Systematic Planning for Comprehensive Programs of Guidance, Counseling, Placement and Follow-Through in Illinois. Phase Two. Final Report, September 15, 1978 through June 30, 1979.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
Completion of phase 2 of a project to disseminate materials to train staff in the implementation and operation of a comprehensive guidance and counseling program resulted in workshops, classes, and a final report on the career guidance planning model called PAGE 2 (Programmatic Approach to Guidance Excellence) in Illinois. Where phase 1 saw to printing and dissemination of PAGE 2 materials, facilitator training, and PAGE 2 initial workshop plans (see note), phase 2 consisted of five completed PAGE 2 workshops involving 115 teachers, counselors, administrators, and parents. Workshop participants planned comprehensive career guidance programs for their local school districts. Furthermore, graduate courses in education and in personnel development, designed to train directors and school personnel in implementation, delivery, and evaluation of guidance programs, were held at the University of Illinois using PAGE 2 materials and presentations from project staff. Project materials were disseminated statewide and follow-up data were assembled to produce the final report evaluating the impact of the system in school settings. Results indicate PAGE 2's success in furnishing effective inservice training materials whereby school personnel have available a planning process, a team approach, and clear means to choose and describe goals and objectives. PAGE 2 materials encouraged community input and participation, while showing how to combine a guidance program with a school's overall priorities so that it becomes part of the curriculum. (CP)
