Abstract

The purpose of this project was to plan, organize and recommend for' the purpose of implementation a program of guidance services that would best meet the needs of the Bay D'Espoir-Fortune Bay Integrated School District. -- The designed program was based upon the organization of the District, the resources available and the basic needs of the educational system. -- The guidance priorities of the District were established. Questionnaires were designed and administered to the teachers and administrators within the school system. The Mooney Problem Checklist was also administered to a group of grade nine students in the English-Harbor West System. The results of both the questionnaire and the checklists were then tabulated. As a result a great degree of correlation was found to exist between the results of the needs listed by teachers on-the questionnaire and the problems that-appeared most important to the students. -- The guidance priorities were then established for each , school system. A recommended program was designed around the most important needs listed. This program was designed on a one year basis with the hope that the people concerned would then continue to develop a program once the greater needs have been satisfied. -- The-most important recommendations concerned the role of the district supervisor of guidance. His function would be to plan and organize programs and conduct in-service training for a corps of teacher-counselors to be recruited in the various schools of the District.
