Guidance and Cnunsehng Guidance and counseling services at Central High School are biased upon the principle that "Guidance is any activ- ity which influences any individual in making plans, for his own future." Our guidance program may be identified by three phases: Orientation. Educational Guidance, and Voca- tional Guidance. Included in all of these is also the fac- tor of Personal Guidance. The elementary teacher, the high school teacher, the group adviser, the counselor. and the administrator must all work together to success- fully fullill the aims of any guidance program. In the Central High plan, the school principal and as- sistant principal serve as the directors. They appoint a guidance committee of teachers. who have been certified as counselors by the Missouri State Department of Edu- cation, During the school year 1953-54, Mr. Russell W. Hibbert has served as chairman of the guidance com- mittee and as counselor for the pupils of Sophomore and Junior groups. Mr. Leighton Martyr has served as Freshman counselor, Mr, Max Carlisle as Senior counselor, and Miss Ruth Colestock as testing counselor. Much of the orientation guidance has been done in the Freshman year. It starts when the high school counselor visits the elementary school to interest the eighth grade pupils in a high school education, The selection of high school subjects most suited to a pupil's needs embraces the scope of Educational Guidance. Most Educational Guidance is done by the teacher-ad- at Central visers, some through the administrative staff of the school, and some through the counselors. Many individual pupils call at the guidance oiiice for personal counseling, and each term an increasing number of pupils are referred to the counselor by his advisor, Group guidance, as well as individual counseling helps to make a better informed pupil. At Central the group guidance program has included Auditorium programs, Guest Speakers, Visual Aids, Career Clubs, Multiple Counseling, Career Day, and field trips. Vocational Guidance helps a pupil prepare to better meet the problems he must solve when he becomes a high school graduate. Counselors spend considerable time in helping pupils make their vocational choice during the time they are school citizens. Much of this individual counseling is based on the results of "Standardized Tests" inter- preted by the counselor. Placement service is a part of the total program of Guidance services. At Central many pupils are placed in jobs selected to meet their interests, needs, and capabilities. Placements in commercial work are cared for by Mr. Ralph Kirn, those in Industrial Arts by Mr. Jesse Vertrees, and those in Distributive Education by Mr. E. E. Chapman. The Guidance and Counseling Service at Central en- deavors to provide a well rounded program including both Group guidance and Individual Counseling, and to agree with the author who says, "Group Guidance plus in- dividual counseling produces better results than either alone."

Around forty Central' High students are seen leaving the school soon after lunchtime each day. "Are they skipping?" you might ask. No. At least, most of them aren't. Their programs are arranged so that they can get to work early in the afternoon. These students are the "Co-ops," enrolled in our two part-time work-experience programs, Distributive Education and Secretarial Practice. The Co-ops attend regular classes where they study about the work they are doing in the afternoon. UentraI's "Cu-lip" Program cedures during their eighth term. While doing this, they are attending school in the morning, and getting practical on-the-job experience in the afternoon. During the last year the girls have received their training in such businesses as insurance, finance, wholesale paper, newspaper, fuse and electrical manufacturing, as well as at several elementary schools. Co-ops in Secretarial Practice and Distribu- tive Education earn a credit for their class work and a credit for their successful work experience. The employers grade their work for each report Secretarial "Co-ops" Distributive Education students study about the distribution of goods: that is, the buying and selling of merchandise, with all the prob- lems connected with that activity. They learn about the problems of both the employees and the management of stores. Each Distributive Education student learns and earns on the job, by working at least l5 hours a week in a store. Jobs range from stock work to selling, in such places as grocery stores, department stores, va- riety stores, drug stores, and others. Some 20 Central students have been in the D. E. program during the past term, having started as New Seniors. Secretarial Practice "Co-ops" finish their training in typing, shorthand and office pro- card period, by means of a rating sheet, for characteristics like "Ability to get along with others," "Initiative," "Punctuality and Attend- ance," and i'Suitability to the job". The teacher-coordinators, Mr. Chapman and lVlr. Kirn, visit the students' training stations regularly, to observe them on the job and to confer with the employers about the training programs. Employers like to take our selected Central students for training, because they progress faster on the job, and are ready to take over full-time jobs when they graduate.
