Progress Report: Pupil Personnel Services.
The Newport-Mesa Unified School District has developed an innovative approach to the organization and administration of Pupil Personnel Services. This approach reflects the Statement of Educational Principles and the Management and Operations Principles of the District which emphasize results--from which reasonable student progress can be demonstrated. The District's Pupil Personnel Services programs, made up of counselors, psychologists, and managers, work toward these results by the use of both interventive methods--helping young people with special problems--and preventive methods--helping to prevent students from developing problems that could interfere with their ability to make reasonable progress. The results management approach to Pupil Personnel Services places emphasis on the school setting priorities regarding the school needs to which pupil personnel resources should be allocated. This priority setting process may indicate, in some situations, that certain results to which the school is not now allocating resources are of high priority and should have resources allocated to them. This, in turn, may require that pupil personnel specialists develop new skills and knowledge in order to contribute these new results. Inservice training is being provided both at the District and at the school level to help staff develop these new skills. (Author)
