The Helping Process Booklet for Program Coordinators. Dropout Prevention Series.
Faddis, Constance R.
This booklet for dropout prevention program coordinators is part of a series of program materials for a school-based intervention process to help at-risk students stay in school. An introduction lists the qualities a good program coordinator must have or will need to develop as well as the specific tasks a program coordinator must do to make the helping process work at his/her school. The remainder of the booklet offers suggestions for ways to perform these tasks efficiently and effectively. These creative ways to carry out the program coordinator role are discussed: tailor the model program to the school, publicize the program in school and community, select participating faculty and staff, provide inservice on the helping process, organize and modify school programs and courses, set up and maintain open lines of communication, conduct or supervise student intake, select students' helping process team members, facilitate helping process teams' first meetings, coordinate the use of in-school program volunteers, oversee the general program effort in school, serve as liaison with program administration, supervise or conduct recordkeeping, collect and use formative evaluation data, collect summative data, and do whatever is necessary to make it all work.
