The Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program Validation Summary for City, County, Local, and Exempted School Districts.
This document presents a Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program Validation Summary to be completed by the superintendent of each school district within a Vocational Education Planning District in Ohio. Respondents are requested to verify that the comprehensive guidance and counseling program within the school district meets the requirements of the Ohio Administrative Code. For each of 18 components, the superintendent is to record whether the component has been completed, is in progress, or has not been initiated, in which case a proposed implementation data is to be given. The document notes that the Ohio Administrative Code requires local boards of education to adopt a policy regarding school guidance services and that school guidance services be provided to students in kindergarten through grade 12 in accordance with a written plan adopted by the board of education. It is further noted that school guidance services shall include systematic aid to students regarding educational, career, civic, personal, and social concerns including the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Finally, it is noted that the counseling services shall be provided by a certified school counselor. The document concludes that, because of the differences among schools, the guidance program's development must be viewed as evolutionary with efforts directed toward continuous review and improvement.
