Counselor Quality Assurance Program Manual.
McIntire, Ronald G.; Wong, Martha J.
The Counselor Quality Assurance Program, part of the Houston, Texas, Plan for Excellence, addresses the renewal and professional growth opportunities for school counselors. The program is administered by a bi- or tri-dimensional assessment team that may consist of the principal, a supervisor or appropriate central office administrator, and the associate and/or deputy superintendent. Steps of the program, the components of the assessment, and the responsibilities of the team members are outlined in the manual. Assessment instruments provide for a rating of many factors grouped within categories of: special counseling proficiencies, observed group counseling proficiencies, management proficiencies and professional characteristics, and proficiency certification. The appendixes, comprising over two-thirds of the manual, contain the different instruments and forms, a sample memorandum and a sample rating, and a resource manual for the counseling proficiencies.
