Elementary School Guidance Cooperative for Small School Districts.
Monroe School District 103, WA.
The Elementary School Guidance Cooperative was designed to aid isolated school districts exhibiting financial and resource deficiencies in the area of elementary guidance. There were 3 major purposes of the program. The first was to provide an opportunity for children to develop to their fullest potential through early identification and the effective handling of their adjustment problems. The second was to sensitize teachers to the needs of individual students by extending and enriching the teacher's understanding in such areas: individual differences, diagnostic cues, tests and measurements, learning theories, child behavior and development, and classroom guidance techniques. The third purpose was to aid parents in better understanding their children so that they might understand and accept them in terms of their levels of maturity, and in terms of their abilities, interests, and potentialities. During the 1968 school year the program served 7 school districts, 84 teachers, and 2,200 children in the State of Washington. The program was funded under the provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, Title III. (DK)
