Coordination of the Community College and Secondary School Guidance Programs.
Turner, Sarah Jane
Accepting the 1965 Carnegie Commission Report's suggestion that guidance should be comprehensive and coordinated between secondary education and the community college, this paper presents a synthesis of current literature covering guidance programs and a proposed coordination program between secondary schools and community college guidance services. This proposal suggests that three major obstacles must first be dealt with: financing, personnel acceptance and time allocation of staff. The central guidance coordinating institution should be the community college with the secondary schools becoming associates. The community college guidance program should serve as the focus and resource center for associated schools. Three functions of the community college guidance staff should be to: (1) maintain complete occupational information; (2) coordinate student programs to smooth the transition from high school to community college; and (3) act as a resource or referral agency for students with emotional problems. The secondary school counselor should be a consultant to the community college guidance personnel by advising them on the particular needs of entering students. (MN)
