Summary

Elementary counseling and guidance was introduced in Olympia, Washington, during the 1966-67 school year. Two previous reports on the progress of the program were written prior to this final evaluation. Chapter One is an overview of the program. Chapter Two is an attempt to describe the role and function of the counselor. The developmental model depicted in Chapter Two is based upon several premises underlying guidance in the elementary school: (1) guidance is an integral part of the total education process, (2) guidance is concerned with the developmental needs of all children, (3) guidance is focused on the student as a learner in the educational setting of the school, and (4) guidance activities should be organized along a developmental continuum. In Chapter Three the assessment techniques used are described. Results include the belief of teachers that counselors have something special to offer to the elementary school. Chapter Five gives comments and recommendations by teachers and parents. Among these are recommendations on: (1) the introduction and role of the counselor, and (2) working with parents. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Author/KJ)
