An implementation handbook for principals who wish to begin an advisory program at the secondary level was developed. Thirtynine principals from middle schools and high schools in Washington State were surveyed concerning the need for advisement programs at the secondary level. Questions concerning need, scheduling, evaluation, in-service, and program administration were asked in the survey. The information from the survey, as well as information contained in the literature, was used in the development of the implementation handbook.
