Accountability in Guidance Services. A Guide for the Development of a Competency-Based Outcome-Stated Guidance Plan.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Guidance Services.
In recognition of the need for guidance services to be accountable for their portion of the educational process, this guide was designed for the development of a competency-based, outcome-stated plan by each school district in Texas. The guide covers the five phases of the planning process and the counselor competencies required. The format is designed to demonstrate a viable model for the development of an accountable guidance plan. The publication is divided into two major parts. The first part consists of a statement of the five sequential phases of the planning process for a guidance program plan. These sequential phases are: (1) assessing needs, (2) setting priorities, (3) developing objectives, (4) developing activities to achieve objectives, and (5) evaluating program. The second part briefly outlines the five phases with their objectives, processes, and outcomes restated without the explanatory narrative statements. The authors suggest that in developing a district guidance plan, the effectiveness of the objectives and processes would be measured in terms of pupil outcomes. Extensive appendixes include examples of needs assessment instruments, district guidance plans, and an evaluation format. (Author/PC)
