Developing and Managing Your School Guidance Program. Third Edition.
Gysbers, Norman C.; Henderson, Patricia
This expanded third edition presents the authors' widely used K-12 model for planning, designing, implementing, evaluating, and enhancing content-based guidance programs. A comprehensive organizational framework useful for both reforming and establishing new guidance programs, and for improving existing programs, is provided. This edition offers new recommendations for evaluating programs, personnel, and program change results, and for using evaluation data to enhance programs that have been in place for years. Each chapter contains specific tasks to be completed during each phase of the change process, with a sample timetable for completion.
