Alaska School Counseling Program Guide. Working Document.
South East Regional Resource Center, Juneau, AK.
The primary purpose of this program guide is to help school districts deal directly with these issues: (1) lack of school counseling program efforts that reach 100 percent of the student population; (2) lack of a programmatic approach to school counseling; (3) lack of accountability; (4) overabundance of non-counseling tasks that lead to counselor ineffectiveness; and (5) lack of student competencies to address student needs. The first section of the document outlines the benefits of school counseling programs for students, parents, teachers, administrators, local boards of education, business, industry, labor, and counseling personnel. The second section discusses structural components and program components of school counseling programs. The structural components include program definition and philosophy; advisory council; budget; counseling program facilities; counseling resources; and staffing patterns. The program components include counseling curriculum, individual student planning, and system support. The third section discusses implementation of counseling programs and includes a schedule description. The final section discusses personnel, program, and student outcome evaluations. Included in the 10-part appendix are a counseling curriculum guide, a competency statement list, a needs assessment table, sample job descriptions, sample evaluation forms, and a multicultural counseling position statement.
