Part 4 discusses content of the program: guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and system support. Part 5 focuses on areas of the guidance curriculum. Part 6 discusses responsive services. Part 7 on systems support covers course selection, preparing for a postsecondary program, advocacy, peer career counseling, peer tutoring, and counselor time allocation.
