Post High School Transition: A Planning Guide for Educational and Job Placement.
Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
This guide for teachers, counselors, and administrators presents a comprehensive system for educational and job placement aimed at facilitating post high school transition. It emphasizes activities and services for educational placement and job placement and development of student skills leading to self-placement. Chapter 1 describes features of exemplary placement programs: a guidance and career preparation orientation; educational and job placement options; the planning, implementation, and evaluation processes; and community partnerships. Sample activities for implementing each element are listed. Chapter 2 recommends basic placement activities in four program categories: preparation for placement, educational and job placement, placement related to training, and evaluation. Fundamental placement activities are listed, and examples are given. Chapter 3 describes a planning process that will result in a comprehensive placement program tailored to local needs. It discusses basic strategies for assessing needs, setting objectives, identifying program activities, making staff assignments, carrying out plans, managing information, evaluating placement activities, documenting student placements, and following through for program improvement. It suggests process options for each step. A glossary precedes the introduction. The appendix includes a 23-item annotated bibliography of placement literature and sample forms for the placement process. (YLB)
