Guidance Awareness Program: Narrowing the Gap Between Home and School: Final Report.
Lamont, Ken; Rice, Naomi
The project, designed to prepare both students and parents for a productive high school experience, had the following goals: increasing decision-making ability and goal formulation at the sophomore level, expanding the guidance program to include the parent and home situation, increasing community support for school programs, and providing a model career-guidance program. A visit to the home of each incoming sophomore student for an orientation and guidance conference was made during the summer by one of 25 selected teachers, administrators, and counselors. Small group meetings with the 480 sophomores were conducted by the advisors during the school year. Program goals and objectives, staff development strategy and outcomes, curriculum development, guidance and counseling, and the evaluation process are discussed in separate sections of the report. A favorable third-party evaluation and recommendations for the program's second year are included. The largest section of the document contains the following appended material: a 13-item bibliography, curriculum and staff development materials, results of four project surveys (advisor, student, and parent evaluation and parent and student achievement and goal questionnaire), project publicity, project budget, and personnel list.
