4 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW Why Should Tech Centers Worry About Guidance?  Only about 20% of youth in the year age range express a clear vision of what they want accomplish in life and why »The Path to Purpose, William Damon, 2008 TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies

5 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies Challenges  Create a flexible system of optional career pathways in high schools to better prepare all students for college and careers.  Create supportive relationships between students and adults.  Create a system of advisors that meet with students and parents and home high schools to set goals and help students take the right courses for their program of study.

7 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT StudiesSDW for CT7 TCTW Key Practices  Culture of Continuous Improvement  Challenging Program of Study  Challenging Career/Technical Studies  Work-based Learning  High Expectations  Challenging Academic Studies  Active Engagement  Teachers Working Together  Guidance and Advisement  Extra Help and Transitions TCTW

8 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies TCTW Key Practice: Guidance Involve students and their parents in a guidance and advisement system, develop positive relationships, ensures completion of a CTE concentration with approved sequence of at least four courses, and an accelerated program of study. Provide each student with the same mentor throughout high school to assist with setting goals, selecting courses (academic and CTE), reviewing students’ progress and suggesting appropriate interventions as necessary.

10 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies Quality Guidance Indicators  Reviewed student sequence of courses planned during high school at least once a year.  Students received most help in planning high school studies by end of ninth grade.  When planning for high school, students talked with parents/guardians at home.  During high school a teacher or counselor talked with students individually about career and further education plans.  Students spoke to or visited with someone in a career they aspired to.

11 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies Quality Guidance Indicators Continued…  Someone from college spoke to students about going to college.  Students and their parents/guardians received information and/or assistance from school in selecting or applying to college.  Students had an adult mentor who worked with them all four years of high school.

14 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW 2008 TCTW Assessment  Guidance indicators and emphasis  Intensive/high emphasis= 6 to 8 indicators  Moderate emphasis= 3 to 5 indicators  Low emphasis= 0 to 2 indicators TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies

15 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies % of students provided timely guidance meeting readiness goals—Low Emphasis TCTW Tech Centers That Work Assessment, 2008

16 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies % of students provided timely guidance meeting readiness goals—Moderate Emphasis TCTW Tech Centers That Work Assessment, 2008

17 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies % of students provided timely guidance meeting readiness goals—High Emphasis TCTW Tech Centers That Work Assessment, 2008

18 Southern Regional Education Board HSTW Need for Improved Guidance  10% of students say school personnel play a key role in career guidance (Decisions Without Direction, 2002)  51% of students say no one helped to advise on career and college options (Decisions Without Direction, 2002)  Career choice based on interest rather than opportunity (Decisions Without Direction, 2002) TCTW Forum-Quality CT Studies
