Keys to Success in Student Personnel Services. A Description of a Model Program.
New Albany - Floyd County Consolidated School Corp., IN.
A demonstration student personnel services project was developed and implemented at the Prosser Vocational Center in Indiana. In the 1977-1978 school year, students from eighteen cooperating high schools participated in the program. This represented an increase, due to recruiting by both staff and students, career education beginning at the elementary level, and communication with cooperating school counselors and the general public. The program has an open enrollment policy and an admissions procedure involving extensive counseling and examination of past performance and aptitudes. Cooperative counseling, involving work with students, their cooperating schools, and employers is a key part of the program. Coordinating counselor functions include communicating with cooperating school parents and counselors, coordinating tracking of disadvantaged and handicapped students, counseling potential dropouts and problem students, and direct maintenance of student records. Placement and follow-up services involve more than job placement. Other such activities include facilitating communication among business and industry, community agencies, and cooperating school counselors; teaching students job procurement skills; helping students make the transition from vocational education to employment while still in school; and providing year-round services for students and graduates.
