Regulations and Guidelines for K-12 Guidance Programs.
Delaware State Dept. of Public Instruction, Dover.
This document presents the regulations for school guidance programs for use with students in kindergarten through grade 12 in the state of Delaware. Included with the regulations are a set of guidelines intended to be a model to assist local districts in implementing the regulations. A philosophy statement notes that the counseling and guidance services and programs are based on the assumptions that each student is a unique individual capable of achieving self-sufficiency in problem solving and decision making; that each student has a right to a nurturing environment which provides an opportunity for personal/social development within the school community; and that each student has the potential to develop a sense of self-worth through the enhancement of self-esteem. The K-12 guidance and counseling program is described as developmental, preventive, and remedial, and as revolving around the domains of Personal/Social Development, Academic Development, and Career/Life Planning. Following a description of the regulations, guidelines are offered for implementing regulations in the three domains at the elementary, middle school/junior high school, and high school levels. The document concludes with a set of suggested procedures for coordination of services between the school and community and a set of suggested procedures for information services. (NB)
