Guidance Counseling, Advisor-Advisee Program: Levels 9-12.
During the 1975-76 school year, the Amity High School Advisor/Advisee Program was implemented to promote systematic planning of occupational and educational goals by providing students with direct guidance in selecting courses and activities to meet their interest, abilities, and career objectives. Counselors served as program administrators; teachers were the advisors of 20 students. Teachers were provided inservice training to familiarize them with the program. Students selected their advisors. Stages of implementation and development involved staff inservice sessions, revision of the student checklist to allow for individual differences, an orientation for freshmen, selection of advisors by freshmen and new students, revision of a student needs assessment, a maintenance period, and program evaluation by staff and students. This report provides a brief introduction to the program and briefly discusses the program's rationale and stages of implementation and development from August 1975 through May 1976. Appended is an overview of the program, giving the purpose, goals, general and specific outcomes, advisors' duties, student contract, definitions of the Iowa Test of Educational Development, and examples of materials put into each advisee's personal folder (list of specific duties, student checklist, planning sheet, list of graduation requirements, contact sheet, and official transcript and permanent record).
