Middle School Guidance and Counseling: Suggested Guidelines for School Districts.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This guide was designed to assist school administrators, teachers, counselors, parents and others who are interested in developing guidance programs which meet the needs of young adolescents in Oregon. Practices, procedures, and forms that school districts have found to be most useful in implementing a coordinated guidance and counseling program are presented. A State administrative rule requires that each school district in Oregon provide a coordinated guidance and counseling program to support the educational and career development of students. A sample district plan and a sample building plan are presented which comply with the administrative rule on guidance and counseling and include commonly recommended features of local programs. Guidance program philosophy, coordination, and goals are discussed at the district level, approved guidance and counseling activities are suggested, and the responsibility of individual schools is outlined. The sample building plan contains a calendar of regular guidance activities, expectations of counselors and teachers, and charts of program goals, objectives, sample activities, and responsibilities. Commonly asked questions and answers about guidance and counseling are included. The appendices consist of a job description for a junior high school counselor, two suggested counselor evaluation forms, needs assessment forms for students and staff, guidance program evaluation forms, a career identification form, and a list of ethical standards.
