A project was initiated to disseminate staff development materials which provide a model for systematically planning comprehensive systems of guidance, counseling, placement, and follow-through and to help Illinois educational agencies in efficiently operating comprehensive guidance and counseling programs. In the first of a two-phase project, objectives accomplished or partially accomplished included (1) making needed revisions and reproducing 500 copies of a previously developed and tested planning model for comprehensive systems of guidance, counseling, placement, and follow-through--A Programmatic Approach to Guidance Excellence (PAGE 2); (2) disseminating PAGE 2 planning model copies to educational institutions/agencies for staff development; (3) training at least one facilitator in nineteen Illinois career guidance centers to instruct staff and personnel in school districts in their service region in the use of the model (twenty facilitators from eighteen centers received training); (4) beginning preparation of Illinois educational and community personnel in the use of guidance and counseling planning tools; and (5) providing a variety of personnel trained in guidance/counseling tools' use. Of sixty-two persons involved in three completed workshops, 89% elected to enroll in a University of Illinois staff development course offered in conjunction with the workshops.
