Phoenix Elementary School District #1 began implementing its Competency Based Guidance Program (CBGP) during the 1991-92 school year after being awarded a U.S. Department of Education Drug Free Schools and Communities Programs Grant. The purpose of CBGP was to provide middle-school students with a developmental and proactive guidance program. Competencies emphasized positive coping skills in the educational, career, and personal/social domains and represented knowledge, attitudes, and skills that could be transferred from guided learning situations to productive real life situations. A needs assessment was conducted with teachers, parents, and students and provided the foundation for the CBGP curriculum. Twelve objectives and outcomes were reviewed, including: "A survey will be conducted to evaluate parental attitude of the CBGP"; "A pre-post measurement of self-concept will be administered to students in the 7th and 8th grades in September and the end of the school year"; and "The attainment of specified student outcomes, as a result of delivering the preventative guidance curriculum, will be evaluated." Results are reported for each objective. Sixteen appendices account for approximately three-quarters of the document and include evaluation materials, calendars, program flyers, forms, charts, and correspondence. (JBJ)
