Purpose: The purpose of this program is to develop a statewide systemic reform in school guidance and counseling based on the implementation of comprehensive, developmental school counseling programs that are focused on promoting life and career development and student achievement through partnerships between state government agencies, state school counseling associations, and institutions of higher education. This is accomplished through the development of a system to support the implementation of comprehensive, developmental guidance and counseling programs to meet the needs of all students. The program will be carried out through a collaborative arrangement between the selected institution of higher education and the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE). This grant requires the selected institution of higher education to provide statewide training for school counselors, teachers, administrators, and counselor educators on the components of a standards-based comprehensive, developmental guidance and counseling program and successful implementation of the design. Additionally, the grant requires the selected institution of higher education to work directly with selected high schools to provide in-depth guidance in implementing and evaluating program components and student outcomes. This is year two of a three-year grant program.

Eligible Agencies: This is a continuation grant program open to the agency that was selected during the competitive review process in year one.
