Migrant Counselor's Guide.
Vela, Jesus, Jr.
The first part of a two-part manual, this guide emphasizes how migrant counselors administer their duties, procedures to follow and functional aids to employ in working with migrant secondary students. Divided into four sections, the guide is intended to help experienced and inexperienced counselors and to provide administrators and teachers with more information about the migrant counselor's role. The first section presents the philosophy of migrant counseling and an introduction explaining the need for migrant counselors. The second part briefly discusses the history and development of migrant education, identification of migrant students, migrant counselor duties and responsibilities, needs assessment, testing, coordination of migrant program with the Minimum Foundation Program, late entries/early withdrawals, the Secondary Credit Exchange Program, the tutorial program, the Migrant Student Record Transfer System, and Parent Advisory Councils. The third section details six in-state (Texas) and five out-of-state secondary and post-secondary educational opportunities, as well as four possible sources of student financial aid. A fourth part contains concluding remarks and a 7-item bibliography. Appendices discuss legislative history and legal compliance and provide a counselor's flow chart and questionnaire, a student inventory of guidance awareness, forms for counselors to keep for each student, and a glossary.
