Pupil Services: A Resource and Planning Guide. Bulletin 95241.
Mulhern, J. Sean
This guide identifies key factors and considerations in developing a comprehensive, collaborative pupil services delivery system. In addition to describing what these considerations are, information is provided by developing a district and pupil services team. Emphasized here is the need for conceptualizing the delivery of pupil services within the context of a common framework that is connected to the total school environment. The importance of collaboration and integration are highlighted here. The guide is divided into five parts. Part one describes pupil services and the need for teamwork. It lists goals for educating children and provides details on how teamwork can improve service delivery. Part two outlines some of the issues faced by pupil service teams, such as certification and training, organization, and student-staff ratios. The third part addresses the functioning of pupil services delivery at the building level, approaching these services in terms of traditional services delivery and collaborative services delivery. Part four furnishes some of the key considerations for pupil services directors, such as organization of services, policy development, budgeting, personnel matters, and other concerns. The last section contains 12 appendices which provide information on resources, goals, ethics, administrative codes, and various other program details. (RJM)
