In response to public concern, the Utah Comprehensive Guidance Program Model was developed with guidance as a full-fledged education program. Adoption of the model in middle/junior high schools and high schools, and the relationship of training in the model and state funding are discussed in the "Introduction." The situation prior to model development is discussed under "Attractiveness of the Model." The Utah model shares the major characteristics of the Gysbers/Henderson and the Missouri models, and provides a unique statewide approach to implementation. Key strategies and a history of the process are presented under "Strategy Used in Gaining Adoption of the Model." Pilot schools are listed. Under "Program Function," state, regional, and district roles are discussed. The text of the state statute delineating the state's contribution to the Comprehensive Guidance Program, and the "Administrative Rules for Comprehensive Guidance Utah State Board of Education" are both provided. "Program Success" describes the progress of implementation of the model and gives an overview of program results. A particularly successful feature of the program, the "Student Education Occupation Plan" is highlighted and other successful features are reviewed. Additional sections include "Future Goals" and "Advice to New Implementers." Resources and References sections are appended. (EMK)
