Planning for Life: [Career Counseling Program in Dorchester School District Two, SC].
Jolly, Janice; Shieder, Mev
Dorchester School District 2 offers a career guidance program that promotes an ongoing, developmental career planning process for each student. The career awareness program in grades K-5 promotes the students' knowledge of self and others; awareness of collaboration among school, home, community, and business and industry; and awareness of careers. The Student Career Planner offers a checklist for the student, based on data collected from grades 6-12. This yellow folder then demonstrated the development process of each student and serves as a repository for assessment results, 6-year career development records, and other pertinent documents counselors deem necessary for successful career planning. The career exploration program in grades 6-8 involves the students in assessment of interests, abilities, and values; exploration of career clusters; and planning for their high school program of study. Career preparation in grades 9-12 involves the students in matching assessment of interests, abilities, and values to plans for a program of study in secondary and postsecondary education and work experiences; participating in school-to-work transition programs; and preparing to successfully enter the work force. Staff development sessions are conducted throughout the year for administrators, teachers, and counselors and through two graduate courses offered to all certified personnel. (YLB)
