Idaho Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program Model.
Idaho State Board of Education, Boise.
The guidance and counseling profession is evolving from a collection of crisis-oriented services to a comprehensive program with a curriculum emphasis on student outcomes linked to social/personal, educational, and career success. Ways in which school counselors and administrators can move from an ancillary service mode into a comprehensive guidance and counseling program (CGCP) are described in this booklet. It covers a series of procedures which will lead school guidance and counseling programs to establish, implement, and achieve goals based on the attainment of improved student competence. It begins with a conceptual framework and moves through the development, implementation, evaluation, and refinement steps needed for an effective program. Chapter 1 presents the basic tenets upon which the CGCP model is built. The next chapter outlines the CGCP model, describing the program components, student outcomes, and delivery methods. Chapter 3 discusses necessary structural resources, such as time, space, staff expertise, equipment, and resource materials. An implementation process is presented in chapter 4, in which suggestions for making the transition from a school's current program to a CGCP are presented. Finally, evaluation, review, and refinement requirements are discussed in the last chapter, which details different approaches for measuring program effectiveness. (RJM)
