Missouri Univ., Columbia. Dept. of Counseling and Personnel Services.
This manual is designed to aid school personnel to establish a student advisory program in the middle school. The rationale, definition and benefits of the program are detailed in an initial section, including areas of responsibility and the role of principal, teachers, counselors, and special services staff. The second section presents a three-step developmental process for the implementation of the program, including: (1) establishing a need, identifying significant problems, creating a climate for change, and gaining support of the program's implementers; (2) planning for the implementation, establishing a steering committee and planning the program (scheduling, membership, location, parent and parent-student-advisor conferences); and (3) developing tools for the implementation of the program plan including structuring responsibilities, phasing-in the plan, and staff development activities. Appendix A provides descriptions of three different advisor programs. Appendix B contains a parent survey, an advisee survey and a parent conference letter. (MCF)
