Placement Assistance Services: Procedures Manual. S.P.A.C.E. Student Placement and Counseling Effort.
Irvin, Donald E.; Galey, Stephen B.
This manual represents an attempt to develop a model and procedures for implementing career planning and placement assistance services in Minnesota high schools. The procedures described were developed for and tested in four participating high schools of different sizes, administrative structures, and geographic locations. Divided into seven chapters, this manual is designed to provide assistance in developing placement services for individuals entering any post high school activity, including both educational and employment activities. Chapter 1 explains implementation of the procedures and describes the career planning and placement model. Chapter 2 describes the organizational structure, covering the operational stages, groups of individuals, and operational matrix. Chapters 3 through 6 describe the orientation, preparation, implementation, and evaluation procedures for faculty, students, and external groups. Finally, chapter 7 explains three staffing alternatives: (1) complete placement staff; (2) partial placement staff; and (3) reassignment of existing personnel. The majority of this document contains appended materials, such as related records, forms, and questionnaires. (A related document contains an instructional guide for teaching job-seeking skills.)
