Accreditation Standard IV: Guidance Standards for Secondary Schools. Suggested Implementation Procedure.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
Guidance and counseling is an integral part of the need fulfillment in the educational process. This truth was established and accepted by Kansas and it was further determined that, if true, then there needed to be an acceptable organized guidance program with a properly certified counselor working in a program with goals, objectives, and expected outcomes. These goals, objectives, and expected outcomes become part of a Policy Statement developed with broad base local involvement in their formulation. In order that it be accepted by the local board of education, a copy was placed on file with the board clerk, each local administrator, and counselor. The Policy Statement establishes rationale, responsibilities, and identity; what would and would not be expected of the counselor in the delivery of his professional services. The policy statement would be approved by State Department of Education and be part of the 15 accrediting standards for each secondary building. This process has been piloted, orientation and implementation seminars have been held for schools involved in the process and is being phased in across the state by groups in about 100 schools.
