The Reorganized Junior High School Program completed its second year of operation in June 1973. An additional counselor was hired for each of the two schools in the project, Jordan and Marshall-University. A major procedural objective called for the counselors to place greater emphasis on team member, implementer, and facilitator functions. The outcome objectives of the project were increased counselor effectiveness as viewed by teachers and students, positive student attitudes toward school, and increased parent and student involvement in the school. Two seventh grade counselors at Jordan assumed responsibility for the usual administrative role in the area of student behavior. Working contacts between counselors and teachers were increased by team meetings held twice a week during the second semester, counselor visits to classrooms, and informal meetings in the seventh grade conference area. At Marshall-University teacher-counselor teams consisting of one counselor and four teachers, were set up to work with 160 eighth graders and 100 seventh graders. Daily team meetings during the team teachers' common preparation time were the core of the project. Generally, both teachers and students expressed more favorable attitudes toward their counselors after implementation of the Reorganized Junior High School Program. (Author/BJG)
