Pupil Personnel Services in Schools--Organization and Coordination. Organization, Administration, and Leadership.
Hummel, Dean L.; Donham, S. J., Jr.
Part II includes chapters three and four. Chapter Three, "Organizing a Balanced Pupil Personnel Program," focuses on the coordination of three program functions among the many services the authors include under pupil personnel services: (1) supportive-consultative, (2) special instructional, and (3) research and data processing. They illustrate plans for organization with responsibility flow charts, diagrams, and outlines giving detailed recommendations for each service concerning: (1) training, (2) staffing ratio, (3) location and facilities, and (4) primary function. A discussion follows on school district size and priorities. Chapter Four, "Administration and Leadership for Pupil Personnel Programs," states the primary purpose of such programs: "to facilitate maximum development of the individual through education." The authors then discuss roles and functions of administrators in fulfilling that purpose, with emphasis on interpersonal relations. The responsibilities of specific administrators are outlined. A list of readings follows each chapter. (BP)
