The small high school has some problems to overcome in order to do an effective job in the guidance of its young people. It is difficult for the staff to find time for guidance activities in the busy schedule of today's curriculum. Released time is very necessary if effective counseling is to be done.

Another problan to be faced is the lack of trained personnel to head the guidance program. The high school principal must find a capable person or else head the program himself.

A third problem faced by the small high school is that of maintaining adequate records and obtaining usable anecdotal records. Teachers must have special training to be able to maintain anecdotal records.

The solving of these problems will insure a feasible fulfillment of the small high schools guidance needs. The success or failure of the guidance program will depend upon how well the high school principal solves the for mentioned problems.
