Introducing and Developing a Program of Accountability. Pupil Personnel Services Guidelines. Monograph No. 3.
Pupil personnel service (pps) workers, who devote most of their efforts to the humanistic aspects of education, have shown reluctance toward embracing a performance model of accountability. Nevertheless, pps workers realize that a good system of accountability is intrinsically necessary as well as desirable. Some guidelines for developing an accountability system for pps as part of the total educational enterprise are provided. Some of the basic elements of accountability are discussed and their application to a school system or district program of pps and to programs at the school level are described. This general discussion is followed with brief illustrations designed to clarify the procedures previously discussed. These illustrations are not be be interpreted as an organizational model for pps. Nor are the elements of accountability discussed here intended to be a blueprint for an accountability system. Each pps administrator will want to adopt the principles and procedures described here to his own circumstances and needs--expanding, condensing, or modifying them as necessary. (Author/RC)
