The Comprehensive Counseling Program for Alaska Public Schools. A Guide for Program Development: K-12th Grade.

The wide range of settings for counseling, from large urban schools to remote bush communities, as well as the many multicultural issues found in Alaska, when combined with the changing American society led to the development of this state-wide counseling and guidance plan. The goal of this plan is to provide comprehensive and systematic counseling programs that are on-going, especially at the elementary level. The program guide describes in detail the needs to be met and the services to be provided through the Alaska School Counseling Program. The program definition states the needs as: (1) acquire and apply knowledge of self and others; (2) develop competencies in career/life planning; and (3) achieve educational success. The program definition also lists four areas of core services: (1) personal and career development curriculum; (2) individual student planning; (3) responsive services; and (4) systems support. The manual provides a detailed step-by-step description of the counseling program, focusing on both support components, e.g., budget and facilities, and program components, e.g., personal curriculum and student planning. The chapters are divided into an overview, components, implementation, scope and sequence, needs assessment, roles and responsibilities, program evaluation, and appendices. (KM)
