Evaluation of Counseling Services in a Rural School District: Assessing Current Program Status.
Taylor, Elizabeth R.
In the late 1990s the Texas Education Agency advocated the transformation of all counseling services into developmental guidance programs. This document describes the process undertaken and the lessons learned when evaluating a small, rural school district in north Texas in order to begin this model transformation. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the pre-transformation counseling services through the eyes of school administrators, students, teachers, counselors, and parents. Information was derived from surveys, interviews, and time logs. The evaluation accomplished several tasks necessary for comparing current services with those in the newly developed guidance plan. It also resulted in some changes at the district level. These are discussed, along with lessons learned that might improve a future evaluation. (ADT)
