The Evaluation of an Oregon School District's Guidance and Counseling Activities.
This evaluation examines the administrative history, staffing levels and content of school district guidance and counseling activities. Case studies were made in a 50 percent random sample of the Eugene, Oregon school district's 45 elementary schools. Eight hundred teachers, parents and students were interviewed. All school plans were reviewed. Five-year staffing patterns and staff changes were studied. For 15 days all district staff with guidance and counseling responsibilities recorded characteristics of guidance and counseling contacts. Schools with and without counselors were studied to estimate differences in who receives services and what is provided. Results showed systematic differences in the level and kind of services provided secondary and elementary students. Approximately one-third of the schools studied had stable programs. Schools with stable programs provided a broader range of services and distributed them in a more equitable manner. An organization chart of the Oregon Department of Education guidance and counseling operations for 1980-81 and tables of evaluation results are included. (Author/JAC)
