Pupil Personnel Services: A Position Statement.
Stoughton, Robert W.
The development of pupil personnel services (PPS) has become one of the significant ways for schools to meet the challenges of meeting the needs of each individual child, and providing leadership and assistance in the adjustments necessary to live in a changing environment. Services provided by PPS include working with: (1) all school personnel, (2) parents, (3) pupils, and (4) community agents. The organization and administration of PPS is presented, including staffing, program priorities, relationship to the community, and internal functioning of these services. The preparation of the PPS administrator and his staff is discussed. The final section on challenges and research includes suggestions of questions to be answered in the following areas of concern: (1) child study, (2) changing times, (3) prevention approaches, (4) social problems, and (5) paraprofessional use. The 14 points relevant to future direction and emphasis in PPS developed by the Interprofessional Research Commission on Pupil Personnel Services are given. (Author/KJ)
