Elementary School Guidance and Counseling: Suggested Guidelines for School Districts.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This guide is designed for school administrators, teachers, counselors, parents and others concerned with meeting the guidance needs of Oregon youth. Although geographically specific, this material may be helpful to any individuals who are examining current guidance programs in elementary schools and seeking directions for improvement. An introduction to the need for new and expanded guidance programs, especially at the elementary level, discusses minimum standards for programs, provides guiding principles, reviews guidance program development, and focuses on expectations and need identification for individual programs. The role of a guidance committee is also discussed. The elementary school guidance program is described and contributions expected from the child, parent, administrator, teacher, elementary counselor, other personnel, and community resources in the team approach to guidance are enumerated. Both program and counselor evaluations are suggested in the evaluation section of the guide. A discussion of related concerns focuses on facilities, training and materials, counseling staff selection and expectations, basic tenets for counselors, support personnel, and the counselor and the law. Guidelines for proper recording and handling of student records are followed by an appendix of sample forms. (NRB)
