Unified State Plan for Guidance, Counseling and Placement in Colorado. Postsecondary.
Carlson, Nancy; And Others
This guide, one of three units in the Colorado state plan for guidance program development, is written for educators as both a guideline and a needs assessment instrument to assist in the identification of deficit areas in school guidance programs. In a beginning section, this unit for the postsecondary level provides a brief philosophy of guidance and definitions of commonly used terms, (e.g., guidance, counseling, career education). The three areas covered by the state plan are presented and include: (1) program components (guidance, counseling, and budget, staff, and facilities); (2) student outcomes in 11 areas (e.g., conflict resolution, career planning, responsibility, decision making); and (3) use of resources (business, industry, community). The format of the guide is a series of charts which present either goals and objectives, and sections for recording current activities and the strengths and weaknesses of the current program (Program Components section); or suggested activities/topics and space for marking current practice at each grade level (Student Outcomes section). The Use of Resources section lists suggestions for a resource file and provides program planning sheets. The statement of purpose and membership list for the Colorado Advisory Council for Guidance, Counseling and Placement is also included. (BL)
