An In-School Job Placement Service for Secondary School Students. Final Report.
Gray, Kenneth C.
A job placement model, integrated into an existing guidance program, was developed, field tested, and evaluated in the Mt. Ararat School, Maine. The project focused on nine priorities related to job placement, job development, job-seeking and keeping skills, and followup services. Objectives, procedures, and methods of evaluation were set up for each priority. The process was divided into five major areas in which specific activities were conducted: needs assessment, job development, student development and placement, followup (post-graduate and undergraduate), and evaluation. A placement team approach was developed as a model for small schools with limited guidance staff. A successful program was established which led to the writing of legislation to provide similar services to all Maine high school graduates. Conclusions relate to each of the five activity areas and show that the need for job placement among high school students can best be met by existing guidance staff or by a placement team. Five recommendations for promoting job placement in secondary schools are stated. Appended materials (24 pages) include forms used in assessment, development, and evaluation activities; a copy of the legislation; and a 20-item bibliography. (MS)
