Rural Community Resources as a Guidance Tool: An Action Plan.
Robinson, Graydon, Ed.
The Community Centered School Support Program, also known as the Bingham Project, is not a new idea but rather a more structured application of an old concept. The plan assists small rural schools with inadequate guidance funds to establish a career information program at a minimum cost using the community, a heretofore untapped resource. The objectives of this 1970 Title I Elementary and Secondary Education Act program are to: convince the school and community that they should provide, in their planning and budgets, for guidance services; foster better school-community relationships; emphasize the importance of career information for education and life planning; provide significant guidance services to the noncollege student; train teacher-counselors for the guidance role; and train the school's personnel toward independent operation of this community-school support program after Federal funding is terminated. The report/guideline summary assists persons who might be interested in establishing such a program giving: a project description, procedures (including the teacher-student interview program, career representatives, career information sources and classification, a career card file system, career type interviews, films, and the committee structure); and personal and financial requirements. News release samples, miscellaneous forms, an equipment inventory, and sources of career information are also listed. (KM)
