Leading and Managing Comprehensive School Guidance Programs. ERIC/CASS Digest.
Gysbers, Norman C.; Henderson, Patricia
Fundamental beliefs and organizational structure represent an important part of comprehensive guidance programs serving students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. These programs help students gain competencies in the areas of personal/social, educational, and career development at all educational levels. Comprehensive programs guarantee that all students have access to school counselors and school counselors have access to all students. A comprehensive school guidance program is implemented through a team approach that uses all staff members in roles appropriate to their training and competence. District and building guidance program leaders fulfill four roles: administrator, supervisor, manager, and professional leader. When guidance is conceptualized and implemented as a program in schools, with the appropriate leadership, it places guidance conceptually and structurally in the center of education and education reform.
