POLAND REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL

DEVELOPMENTAL GUIDANCE PHILOSOPHY


A comprehensive Guidance Program uses a holistic approach in actively 
assisting students to develop ideas, goals, and objectives, which will help 
them gain greater independence, self-knowledge, and self-esteem.  A Guidance 
Program must begin in kindergarten and continue through grade 12 with the 
focus of services being prevention rather than remediation.  The Guidance 
Program is an integral part of the total educational program for all 
students; its success depends upon the combined efforts of the entire school 
community. The Guidance Program is carefully planned, systematically 
implemented, and reflects current developments in the field.

Goals and objectives for the Guidance Program are based on the belief that 
each student has a unique combination of needs, interests, abilities, and 
developmental issues which impact academic, personal and social growth.  This 
program will contribute to the growth and development of all students by 
striving to equip them with the knowledge, awareness, and skills needed to 
thrive in the world in which they live and work.  The Guidance related needs 
of students, can be grouped as follows:


1. Personal and social development

2. Educational development

3. Career development


The Program provides counseling, consultation, appraisal, information and 
referral in support of these needs.
