An extensive self-study has provided considerable information about the guidance and counseling services in the State College Area School District.

The latter deal with: (1) providing adequate and continuous guidance and counseling services to students in elementary and secondary education; (2) improving the coordination between counselors on the one hand, and teachers and administration on the other; (3) establishing an ongoing relation between parents and counselors to help the former understand their children better as well as to help them understand the purpose and programs of the schools; (4) fostering continuous teamwork among those specialists within the school system whose functions can aid the development of students; and (5) making use of community resources as well as acting as a liaison between the school and the community professional agencies. Finally, an appeal is made to all interested and responsible parties to review this report and its accompanying recommendations, and to try to implement them. (Author/SE)
