The Comprehensive Counseling Program for Alaska Public Schools. A Guide for Program Development K-12th Grade.
Alaska State Dept. of Education and Early Development, Juneau.
Alaskan school counselors deal with diverse systems and conditions in order to deliver counseling services through the Alaska School Counseling Program. Wherever Alaskan counselors serve, the need for a comprehensive and sequential school counseling program remains the same. An effective school counseling program must enhance and support the Alaska Quality Schools Initiative. This document contains information the Alaskan counselor will need in order to establish programmatic strategies in order to help students meet or exceed the Alaska Performance and Content Standards. The Comprehensive Counseling Program for Alaska Public Schools is built on the belief that a school counseling program must: reach all students; be program-driven rather counselor-driven; provide accountability; supply a curriculum that addresses student needs; and eliminate non-counseling tasks assigned to the counselor. The Comprehensive Counseling Program for Alaska Public Schools was written in 1989. This document is the third revision of the original. It builds upon the experiences and successes of the Alaskan counselors who developed school counseling programs from the original document. A special effort has been made to address the unique problems that itinerant counselors experience in their attempts to establish comprehensive school counseling programs. Many suggestions for itinerants have been incorporated into each section and are marked accordingly. Three appendixes contain academic development activities, career development activities, and personal/social development activities. (GCP)
