The function of the counselor-aides is to provide the necessary screening, testing and preliminary follow-up contact to facilitate the work of the professional staff. Some of the general goals for the counselor-aides were those of being a friend to the student, assuring maximum attendance of students and facilitating communication between home and school. Described are the training format, specific duties of the counselor-aides, evaluation of the training and subsequent performance of the counselor-aides and an evaluation of the program itself. (SJL)
